#540 closed bug (invalid)

DevFS should lowercase /dev entries

The nV driver currently publishes its /dev/graphics entry in uppercase, but the BeOS kernel converts it to lowercase; whereas Haiku perserves the case. Rudolf is changing this behaviour, but I thought i'd report the incompatiblity.

I just checked and R5 definitely doesn't lowercase exported drivers. Whatever was responsible for this effect, that wasn't the cause.

Maybe Rudolfs build system doesnt understand the difference between X and x. Anyhow, driver doesnt do this anymore, so closing.
