Dear All,

How puppy linux kernel differs from other distribution's linux kernel?
Do we modify/costomize puppy linux kernel?

Sincerely,
Srinivas Nayak

CONFIG_DEVTMPFS=y
and
CONFIG_DEVTMPFS_MOUNT=y

are common in bigger distros i think .

'til today Puppy uses a static /dev directory .

I cannot say anything problematic about these two features , despite having multiple kernels for one partition on normal full installations , booting a static /dev kernel after having booted a kernel-maintained-/dev kernel that deletes all nodes in the /dev directory @shutdown , so no /dev/sda* in /dev resulting in kernel panic , unable to mount /dev/sda1 .
Very Happy
