I recently installed OpenBSD 4.6 on an old laptop, and I am finding the /dev directory to be somewhat confusing. It seems as if there are device files which do not have corresponding devices or partition tied to them. Does this have something to do with the lack of udev or devfs?
Also, I cannot seem to find a good deal of my devices. For example, I have an Intel NIC card which uses the fxp driver, and the card works perfectly, but I cannot find an fxp0 device file in /dev. The same goes for my Atheros wireless card and ath0.
If someone here could answer my questions or point me to documentation that answers them, I would greatly appreciate it.
