Hi

Is it possible to create a symlink to a device and use the symlink in place
of the real device name in FreeBSD, especially in version 7.2?

1. A disk
/dev/camera -> /dev/da0s1

2. A network device
re0 -> lan0

That's no problem: Use the "link" statement: "link <source> <target>",
such as

link da0s1 camera
link re0 lan0

in you /etc/devfs.conf file. See the manual page for this file for
more information, or see the example entries in this file.
