    SubjectRe: /dev on Ramdisk cause panic?
    groan. mke2fs wasn't automagically determining the size of the filesystem.

    i also found that minix was a lot better suited for this.

    momentarily having an empty /dev didn't seem to break anything,
    but now that everything works, i just write a prepopulated fs to
    /dev/ram before mounting it.

    thanks for responses,
