I'm having problems with an upgraded fedora system. Recently Amazon added EBS based images and I decided to give it a try. I launched a basic FC8 instance and upgraded it with yum. First up to FC10 and after that up to FC12.
Well I'm missing /dev/random on the FC12 instance now and there're some other obscure things. For example: /dev/null has 600 permissions and /dev/urandom is not a block device. /dev/random is absolutely gone :)
I read here http://markus.revti.com/2007/12/creating-devrandom/ , how to "fix" the above problems, however on every start of the system everything is the same. I'm planning to add the fixes to /etc/rc.local . Do you think this is a good solution/workaround?
Does anyone know where the problem exactly is?
Thank you for any advices and shared knowledge,
p.s. The instance is running this kernel: 126.96.36.199-2.ec2.v1.2.fc8xen
