           Summary: MAKEDEV insufficient with more than 4 scsi drives
           Product: Linux From Scratch
           Version: 4.0
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Book
        AssignedTo: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: chris at micro-mania.net
         QAContact: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org


Running "./MAKEDEV -v generic-nopty" does not make all needed devices if there
are more than 4 scsi drives, as only sd[a-d] are created (at least for me, my
$LFS was on /dev/sdd). I discovered this while trying to mount another partition
within the chroot environment  It is/was easy enough explicitly add more, of
course. 

It would be nice to suggest checking scsi devices after MAKEDEV.  The first time
I built LFS I gave up after one boot attempt (lame, I know) when if I remember
properly all my hard drives were not found (I had added extra partitions to
fstab and now I suspect but cannot prove the real problem).

This bug is related to Bug# 131.
