Nothing special - init(8) does it automatically if there is no /dev/console,
if mount_tmpfs is available and works. It then populates it from /dev/MAKEDEV
(which is hard to update once you have tmpfs on /tmp)

I presume you mean “tmpfs on /dev” above.

A line like:

tmpfs /dev tmpfs rw /etc/fstab is what we’re talking about? No conflicts expected w an existing “tmpfs ...” entries as long as ea. has unique mount point?

or alternatively from
/etc/MAKEDEV (easier to update, but sometimes confuses postinstall(8)).


Thx again.
