		    LINUX ALLOCATED DEVICES (2.6+ version)

	     Maintained by Alan Cox <device@lanana.org>

		      Last revised: 6th April 2009

This list is the Linux Device List, the official registry of allocated
device numbers and /dev directory nodes for the Linux operating
system.

The latest version of this list is available from
http://www.lanana.org/docs/device-list/ or
ftp://ftp.kernel.org/pub/linux/docs/device-list/.  This version may be
newer than the one distributed with the Linux kernel.

The LaTeX version of this document is no longer maintained.

This document is included by reference into the Filesystem Hierarchy
Standard (FHS).	 The FHS is available from http://www.pathname.com/fhs/.

Allocations marked (68k/Amiga) apply to Linux/68k on the Amiga
platform only.	Allocations marked (68k/Atari) apply to Linux/68k on
the Atari platform only.

The symbol {2.6} means the allocation is obsolete and scheduled for
removal once kernel version 2.6 (or equivalent) is released. Some of these
allocations have already been removed.

This document is in the public domain.	The author requests, however,
that semantically altered versions are not distributed without
permission of the author, assuming the author can be contacted without
an unreasonable effort.

In particular, please don't sent patches for this list to Linus, at
least not without contacting me first.

I do not have any information about these devices beyond what appears
on this list.  Any such information requests will be deleted without
reply.


	  **** DEVICE DRIVERS AUTHORS PLEASE READ THIS ****

To have a major number allocated, or a minor number in situations
where that applies (e.g. busmice), please contact me with the
appropriate device information.	 Also, if you have additional
information regarding any of the devices listed below, or if I have
made a mistake, I would greatly appreciate a note.

I do, however, make a few requests about the nature of your report.
This is necessary for me to be able to keep this list up to date and
correct in a timely manner.  First of all, *please* send it to the
correct address... <device@lanana.org>.  I receive hundreds of email
messages a day, so mail sent to other addresses may very well get lost
in the avalanche.  Please put in a descriptive subject, so I can find
your mail again should I need to.  Too many people send me email
saying just "device number request" in the subject.

Second, please include a description of the device *in the same format
as this list*.	The reason for this is that it is the only way I have
found to ensure I have all the requisite information to publish your
device and avoid conflicts.

Third, please don't assume that the distributed version of the list is
up to date.  Due to the number of registrations I have to maintain it
in "batch mode", so there is likely additional registrations that
haven't been listed yet.

Fourth, remember that Linux now has extensive support for dynamic allocation
of device numbering and can use sysfs and udev to handle the naming needs.
There are still some exceptions in the serial and boot device area. Before
asking for a device number make sure you actually need one.

Finally, sometimes I have to play "namespace police."  Please don't be
offended.  I often get submissions for /dev names that would be bound
to cause conflicts down the road.  I am trying to avoid getting in a
situation where we would have to suffer an incompatible forward
change.  Therefore, please consult with me *before* you make your
device names and numbers in any way public, at least to the point
where it would be at all difficult to get them changed.

Your cooperation is appreciated.


  0		Unnamed devices (e.g. non-device mounts)
		  0 = reserved as null device number
		See block major 144, 145, 146 for expansion areas.

  1 char	Memory devices
		  1 = /dev/mem		Physical memory access
		  2 = /dev/kmem		Kernel virtual memory access
		  3 = /dev/null		Null device
		  4 = /dev/port		I/O port access
		  5 = /dev/zero		Null byte source
		  6 = /dev/core		OBSOLETE - replaced by /proc/kcore
		  7 = /dev/full		Returns ENOSPC on write
		  8 = /dev/random	Nondeterministic random number gen.
		  9 = /dev/urandom	Faster, less secure random number gen.
		 10 = /dev/aio		Asynchronous I/O notification interface
		 11 = /dev/kmsg		Writes to this come out as printk's, reads
					export the buffered printk records.
		 12 = /dev/oldmem	OBSOLETE - replaced by /proc/vmcore

  1 block	RAM disk
		  0 = /dev/ram0		First RAM disk
		  1 = /dev/ram1		Second RAM disk
		    ...
		250 = /dev/initrd	Initial RAM disk

		Older kernels had /dev/ramdisk (1, 1) here.
		/dev/initrd refers to a RAM disk which was preloaded
		by the boot loader; newer kernels use /dev/ram0 for
		the initrd.

  2 char	Pseudo-TTY masters
		  0 = /dev/ptyp0	First PTY master
		  1 = /dev/ptyp1	Second PTY master
		    ...
		255 = /dev/ptyef	256th PTY master

		Pseudo-tty's are named as follows:
		* Masters are "pty", slaves are "tty";
		* the fourth letter is one of pqrstuvwxyzabcde indicating
		  the 1st through 16th series of 16 pseudo-ttys each, and
		* the fifth letter is one of 0123456789abcdef indicating
		  the position within the series.

		These are the old-style (BSD) PTY devices; Unix98
		devices are on major 128 and above and use the PTY
		master multiplex (/dev/ptmx) to acquire a PTY on
		demand.

  2 block	Floppy disks
		  0 = /dev/fd0		Controller 0, drive 0, autodetect
		  1 = /dev/fd1		Controller 0, drive 1, autodetect
		  2 = /dev/fd2		Controller 0, drive 2, autodetect
		  3 = /dev/fd3		Controller 0, drive 3, autodetect
		128 = /dev/fd4		Controller 1, drive 0, autodetect
		129 = /dev/fd5		Controller 1, drive 1, autodetect
		130 = /dev/fd6		Controller 1, drive 2, autodetect
		131 = /dev/fd7		Controller 1, drive 3, autodetect

		To specify format, add to the autodetect device number:
		  0 = /dev/fd?		Autodetect format
		  4 = /dev/fd?d360	5.25"  360K in a 360K  drive(1)
		 20 = /dev/fd?h360	5.25"  360K in a 1200K drive(1)
		 48 = /dev/fd?h410	5.25"  410K in a 1200K drive
		 64 = /dev/fd?h420	5.25"  420K in a 1200K drive

		5.25" Quad Density (q), 5.25" High Density (h) or 3.5"
		(any model, u).	 The use of the capital letters D, H
		and E for the 3.5" models have been deprecated, since
		the drive type is insignificant for these devices.

		224 = /dev/nst0a	First SCSI tape, mode 3, no rewind
		225 = /dev/nst1a	Second SCSI tape, mode 3, no rewind
		    ...

		"No rewind" refers to the omission of the default
		automatic rewind on device close.  The MTREW or MTOFFL
		ioctl()'s can be used to rewind the tape regardless of
		the device used to access it.

  9 block	Metadisk (RAID) devices
		  0 = /dev/md0		First metadisk group

 ****	ADDITIONAL /dev DIRECTORY ENTRIES

This section details additional entries that should or may exist in
the /dev directory.  It is preferred that symbolic links use the same
form (absolute or relative) as is indicated here.  Links are
classified as "hard" or "symbolic" depending on the preferred type of
link; if possible, the indicated type of link should be used.


	Compulsory links

These links should exist on all systems:

/dev/fd		/proc/self/fd	symbolic	File descriptors
/dev/stdin	fd/0		symbolic	stdin file descriptor
/dev/stdout	fd/1		symbolic	stdout file descriptor
/dev/stderr	fd/2		symbolic	stderr file descriptor
/dev/nfsd	socksys		symbolic	Required by iBCS-2
/dev/X0R	null		symbolic	Required by iBCS-2

Note: /dev/X0R is <letter X>-<digit 0>-<letter R>.

	Recommended links

It is recommended that these links exist on all systems:

/dev/core	/proc/kcore	symbolic	Backward compatibility
/dev/ramdisk	ram0		symbolic	Backward compatibility
/dev/ftape	qft0		symbolic	Backward compatibility
/dev/bttv0	video0		symbolic	Backward compatibility
/dev/radio	radio0		symbolic	Backward compatibility
/dev/i2o*	/dev/i2o/*	symbolic	Backward compatibility
/dev/scd?	sr?		hard		Alternate SCSI CD-ROM name

	Locally defined links

The following links may be established locally to conform to the
configuration of the system.  This is merely a tabulation of existing
practice, and does not constitute a recommendation.  However, if they
exist, they should have the following uses.

/dev/mouse	mouse port	symbolic	Current mouse device
/dev/tape	tape device	symbolic	Current tape device
/dev/cdrom	CD-ROM device	symbolic	Current CD-ROM device
/dev/cdwriter	CD-writer	symbolic	Current CD-writer device
/dev/scanner	scanner		symbolic	Current scanner device
/dev/modem	modem port	symbolic	Current dialout device
/dev/root	root device	symbolic	Current root filesystem
/dev/swap	swap device	symbolic	Current swap device

/dev/modem should not be used for a modem which supports dialin as
well as dialout, as it tends to cause lock file problems.  If it
exists, /dev/modem should point to the appropriate primary TTY device
(the use of the alternate callout devices is deprecated).

For SCSI devices, /dev/tape and /dev/cdrom should point to the
``cooked'' devices (/dev/st* and /dev/sr*, respectively), whereas
/dev/cdwriter and /dev/scanner should point to the appropriate generic
SCSI devices (/dev/sg*).

/dev/mouse may point to a primary serial TTY device, a hardware mouse
device, or a socket for a mouse driver program (e.g. /dev/gpmdata).

	Sockets and pipes

Non-transient sockets and named pipes may exist in /dev.  Common entries are:

/dev/printer	socket		lpd local socket
/dev/log	socket		syslog local socket
/dev/gpmdata	socket		gpm mouse multiplexer

	Mount points

The following names are reserved for mounting special filesystems
under /dev.  These special filesystems provide kernel interfaces that
cannot be provided with standard device nodes.

/dev/pts	devpts		PTY slave filesystem
/dev/shm	tmpfs		POSIX shared memory maintenance access

 ****	TERMINAL DEVICES

Terminal, or TTY devices are a special class of character devices.  A
terminal device is any device that could act as a controlling terminal
for a session; this includes virtual consoles, serial ports, and
pseudoterminals (PTYs).

All terminal devices share a common set of capabilities known as line
disciplines; these include the common terminal line discipline as well
as SLIP and PPP modes.

All terminal devices are named similarly; this section explains the
naming and use of the various types of TTYs.  Note that the naming
conventions include several historical warts; some of these are
Linux-specific, some were inherited from other systems, and some
reflect Linux outgrowing a borrowed convention.

A hash mark (#) in a device name is used here to indicate a decimal
number without leading zeroes.

	Virtual consoles and the console device

Virtual consoles are full-screen terminal displays on the system video
monitor.  Virtual consoles are named /dev/tty#, with numbering
starting at /dev/tty1; /dev/tty0 is the current virtual console.
/dev/tty0 is the device that should be used to access the system video
card on those architectures for which the frame buffer devices
(/dev/fb*) are not applicable.	Do not use /dev/console
for this purpose.

The console device, /dev/console, is the device to which system
messages should be sent, and on which logins should be permitted in
single-user mode.  Starting with Linux 2.1.71, /dev/console is managed
by the kernel; for previous versions it should be a symbolic link to
either /dev/tty0, a specific virtual console such as /dev/tty1, or to
a serial port primary (tty*, not cu*) device, depending on the
configuration of the system.

	Serial ports

Serial ports are RS-232 serial ports and any device which simulates
one, either in hardware (such as internal modems) or in software (such
as the ISDN driver.)  Under Linux, each serial ports has two device
names, the primary or callin device and the alternate or callout one.
Each kind of device is indicated by a different letter.	 For any
letter X, the names of the devices are /dev/ttyX# and /dev/cux#,
respectively; for historical reasons, /dev/ttyS# and /dev/ttyC#
correspond to /dev/cua# and /dev/cub#.	In the future, it should be
expected that multiple letters will be used; all letters will be upper
case for the "tty" device (e.g. /dev/ttyDP#) and lower case for the
"cu" device (e.g. /dev/cudp#).

The names /dev/ttyQ# and /dev/cuq# are reserved for local use.

The alternate devices provide for kernel-based exclusion and somewhat
different defaults than the primary devices.  Their main purpose is to
allow the use of serial ports with programs with no inherent or broken
support for serial ports.  Their use is deprecated, and they may be
removed from a future version of Linux.

Arbitration of serial ports is provided by the use of lock files with
the names /var/lock/LCK..ttyX#.	 The contents of the lock file should
be the PID of the locking process as an ASCII number.

It is common practice to install links such as /dev/modem
which point to serial ports.  In order to ensure proper locking in the
presence of these links, it is recommended that software chase
symlinks and lock all possible names; additionally, it is recommended
that a lock file be installed with the corresponding alternate
device.	 In order to avoid deadlocks, it is recommended that the locks
are acquired in the following order, and released in the reverse:

	1. The symbolic link name, if any (/var/lock/LCK..modem)
	2. The "tty" name (/var/lock/LCK..ttyS2)
	3. The alternate device name (/var/lock/LCK..cua2)

In the case of nested symbolic links, the lock files should be
installed in the order the symlinks are resolved.

Under no circumstances should an application hold a lock while waiting
for another to be released.  In addition, applications which attempt
to create lock files for the corresponding alternate device names
should take into account the possibility of being used on a non-serial
port TTY, for which no alternate device would exist.

	Pseudoterminals (PTYs)

Pseudoterminals, or PTYs, are used to create login sessions or provide
other capabilities requiring a TTY line discipline (including SLIP or
PPP capability) to arbitrary data-generation processes.	 Each PTY has
a master side, named /dev/pty[p-za-e][0-9a-f], and a slave side, named
/dev/tty[p-za-e][0-9a-f].  The kernel arbitrates the use of PTYs by
allowing each master side to be opened only once.

Once the master side has been opened, the corresponding slave device
can be used in the same manner as any TTY device.  The master and
slave devices are connected by the kernel, generating the equivalent
of a bidirectional pipe with TTY capabilities.

Recent versions of the Linux kernels and GNU libc contain support for
the System V/Unix98 naming scheme for PTYs, which assigns a common
device, /dev/ptmx, to all the masters (opening it will automatically
give you a previously unassigned PTY) and a subdirectory, /dev/pts,
for the slaves; the slaves are named with decimal integers (/dev/pts/#
in our notation).  This removes the problem of exhausting the
namespace and enables the kernel to automatically create the device
nodes for the slaves on demand using the "devpts" filesystem.
