>Description:
MAKEDEV (on the macppc port) doesn't create device nodes for the ld(4) and mlx(4) drivers. Without these device nodes RAID cards using mlx(4) don't work.

Device nodes for ld(4) are needed to mount drives connected to cards using the mlx(4) driver. Device nodes for mlx(4) are needed my mlxctl(8).
>How-To-Repeat:
After
# cd /dev
# ./MAKEDEV
You can't
# mlxctl -f mlx0 status
nor can you
# mount /dev/ld0a /mnt

>Fix:
(partially)
Device nodes for ld(4) can be created by
# cd /dev
# mknod ld0a b 13 0
# mknod rld0a c 59 0
and the like.

The major number for mlx(4) is unknown (to me).
