/dev/fd not being created

Thu Jun 07, 2012 4:26 pm


I tried to search for this, but the search requires 3 or more characters minimum, and it removes slashes, so couldn't find anything on this.

But has anyone else got any issues with /dev/fd not existing. From my understanding udev isn't setting it up now that systemd is doing the work. This isn't a problem, but I keep getting errors like
/usr/bin/makepkg: line 1549: /dev/fd/62: No such file or directory
A solution is to symlink /proc/self/fd to /dev/fd (provided below, if it helps), but I'm not terribly comfortable with this kind of hack.

Code: Select all

$ ln -s /proc/self/fd /dev/fd
That said, AUR now works, so I guess I can't complain too much. Anyone else had this?

And you are fully updated with packages?
