Re: [linux-lvm] 12 x UDMA disks -- problems



ide0..ide5

The ide count is 0 based.  Major number is that of the ide controller.
Minor is that of the 'right' partition.

ide4 master is 56,0 (hdi)  and ide4 slave is 56,64 (hdj) my notation is
major/minor so

mknod hdi b 56 0
mknod hdj b 56 64

Would get you the correct entries.  Partitions are +1 so hdi1 is
mknod hdi1 b 56 1
mknod hdi2 b 56 2

And for hdj

mknod hdj1 b 56 65
mknod hdj2 b 56 66


That is assuming the major number you quoted below is correct :)
