Description Horst H. von Brand 2005-06-06 04:37:27 UTC
Description of problem:
I accidentally discovered two entries for /dev/XOR ("ls /dev/XOR | od -c"
doesn't show funny characters). They have different inodes:

  [root@laptop11 linux-2.6.git2]# ls -li /dev/X*
  2301 lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 4 Jun  5 18:56 /dev/X0R -> null
  3362 lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root 4 Jun  5 18:56 /dev/XOR -> null

FC4t3 fully up to date as of today (except for ghostscript, which interferes
with ImageMagick)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Dunno. Happened this once here AFAIK.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot
Actual results:
Two /dev/XORs

Expected results:
At most one...

one of them is X0R and the other is XOR, (zero, vs O).
Looks normal to me.
