devfs is definitely not reuired--in fact, it's the 1st thing i disable
through lilo since I have not spent the time to try to get it to work
with any software or hardware RAID devices (by default, it does not
recognize software or compaq raid devices).|
The best success I've had so far is to use the release 1 xfs iso for the redhat 7.1 install ( 2.4.2-SGI_XFS_1.0 ). I've had all kinds of trouble trying to get the latest 2.4.5,2.4.6-pre versions to work--xfs installs ok, just other problems cause random freezes and the system hangs. Once the system hangs, I have seen a lot of files on the XFS partitions get zeroed out, or contain binary all throughout them--however, I don't think XFS is to blame for that--just open, half written files when the kernels hard freeze on me.
Now I face the task that the 2.4.2 cciss (compaq raid) has a serious memory leak, so I'm back to trying a recent xfs and 2.4.6 kernel.
Good luck--I need it too.

I've searched the archives but found no answer to this question: Does XFS require DevFS? Or can I build a kernel for my system (installed from the XFS RH7.1 .iso) that does not include devfs without having problems?
