i tried to start uml but report a error can't open initial console. and search the mail list . a topic said that compile the uml kernel haven't enable devfs devpts will make this "can't open inital console"
happened . so i tried to make these option enabled , but strangely i can't found this option as the according said option devfs is under file system---pseufile ----devfs devpts . so i tried to write it by hand ,
first i modified the .config added the lines enabled that , second i modified deconfig under linux-2.6.16/arch/um/ add that lines .
but after complied it, excute "./linux --showconfig" still can't find devfs and devpts have been enabled .
and advice/ help .
