OK, the special care was taken of XFree-4.xx to be devfs-compatible.
I think it is true for KDE also, because nothing happens just automatically.
Midnight Commander doesn't work without devfsd. It just can't know that it
should use /dev/vc/... as a virtual console.
GPM works _partially_ even with devfsd, so the devfs-compatible patch should
be applied. Look for it in gpm distribution sites. What I mean _partially_ ?
The callback which sends events from GPM to Midnight Commander doesn't work.
These were just the two first packages after base installation that made me
install devfsd. So, perhaps there are more.
Why, why in the God's name you don't like devfsd ...?
What is the enormous price that you pay by running devfsd ...?
