Why so many devices in /dev ?
« on: August 20, 2017, 04:00:05 PM »
There is a large list of devices in /dev latest version of picore. Most of the devices are not on the pi nor they will be so why are they there? Is there a way to only show the connected devices? Is there a kernel flag ? Or a reason why all of them show up?

This is the way Tiny Core works. It loop mounts each extension.

#df | grep -v loop

You could also play with copy2fs.flg, so extensions are loaded into memory rather than loop mounted.
