Is that a bug the the filesystem image you are using? I have no
problem with the debian images I create with mkxdeb, or with mounting
devfs on /dev. If this bug is in an image distributed on the web,
please tell which. Otherwise, it's just a bug in your system.

They are born deprived of anything and become rich when they do but by the
accumulated fruits of their own and their ancestors' labor: their capital.
