[EN] [Solved] Problem installing irda-utils
« on: 2014/11/18, 20:49:33 »
While installing irda-utils, the "/var/lib/dpkg/info/irda.utils.postinst" will be executed.
In line 141 it calls /dev/MAKEDEV.
Then I installed makedev but the MAKEDEV was installed in /sbin, so I copied it to /dev.
When reinstalling irda-utils I get "/run/udev or .udevdb or .udev presence implies active udev.  Aborting MAKEDEV invocation"

Has someone an idea how to proceed?

Seems that udev replaced makedev. So that message is just a hint.
irda-util works fine.
Adjusting "irda.utils.postinst" would aviod confusion.
