Chapter 4. Hardware, Devices, and Tools

"Knowledge speaks, but wisdom listens." Jimi Hendrix

This chapter gives an overview of what a device file is, and how to create one. The canonical list of device files is /usr/src/linux/Documentation/devices.txt if you have the Linux kernel source code installed on your system. The devices listed here are correct as of kernel version 2.6.8.
