Custom Raw Device Names in RHEL 5.4


Noticed that raw device support was officially added back in RHEL 5.4. Just wanted to know if it would be possible to have a custom raw device name, instead of /dev/raw/rawN in 5.4? We are running Sybase database on RHEL 5.3 and would like to know if it would be possible to name the raw devices like data[nn], tlog[nn] etc., Also, not sure if Linux Volume Manager has any capability to create raw devices, similar to Veritas Volume Manager? Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Take a look at udev, it is how RedHat rename devices.
