Your .config was not attached.

There is a devfs mounting problem in 2.5.54. If you're using devfs
you may find that

will help

The device node exists in /dev. It sounds like no kernel driver
has registered itself against tht node's major/minor. Make really
sure that you have compiled the appropriate driver for your hardware;
things may have changed. All else fails, send lspci and dmesg output
to this list and/or davej@codemonkey.org.uk
