rc.single needs to be adjusted here, because init s apparently kills
udev. Should be easy, I'll take care of it.
- New udev breaks installation: post_install doesn't create /dev/console
anymore. If /dev/console does not exist, kinit will fail to switch to
the rootfs and the kernel will panic. This is due to the removal of
migrate-udev. We need to include this code into the post_install:
TMPDIR=$(mktemp -d /tmp/udev.XXXXXX)
mount --bind / $(TMPDIR)
[ -c $(TMPDIR)/dev/console ] || mknod ....
[ -c $(TMPDIR)/dev/null ] || mknod ....
[ -c $(TMPDIR)/dev/zero ] || mknod ....
We also need to make sure this works when pacman is used with the -r
option. Maybe we don't need the bind mount, as udev installation is
never done in a running system anymore, but only from a chroot or in the
