bootlogd error at startup

Hans Beckérus <hans.beckerus@...>

I am running the default minimal image on an ARM based board and get
the followig error from bootlogd at startup

INIT: version 2.88 booting
Starting udev
udev[661]: starting version 164
Starting Bootlog daemon: bootlogd: cannot allocate pseudo tty: No such
file or directory
Configuring network interfaces... udhcpc (v1.20.2) started

Running postinst /etc/rpm-postinsts/100...
INIT: Entering runlevel: 5
Starting syslogd/klogd: done
Stopping Bootlog daemon: bootlogd.

After login and checking /dev there *is* a /dev/tty. Also, if starting
bootlogd manually using '/etc/init.d/bootlogd start' there is no
So my guess is that /dev was not yet populated properly when bootlogd
was started by the init process. IIRC is this not that something that
udev should do when started?

Is this a known bug or is there something I have missed in my configuration?

Here is my /etc/inittab (default except from SERIAL_DEVICE)
