To create some character special devices in a chroot environment, I've
previously used mknod, but now can't find the major and minor device
The ls manpage says these numbers should be displayed in the size field.
However, I'm seeing only one hex value, e.g.:
$ ls -l /dev/null
crw-rw-rw- 1 root wheel 0x13 Oct 25 12:22 /dev/null
So I don't know what major and minor values to feed mknod. Or is there
another way to do this?
