how do I relate device major/minor numver to a device

how do I relate device major/minor numver to a device

(OP)
Need help in mapping the device major/minor number.
MAJOR/MINOR DEVICE NUMBER
0028 000D
Thanks,
Oray

RE: how do I relate device major/minor numver to a device

convert from hexadecimal to decimal

0x0028 = 40
0x000D = 13

Now look for a device in ls -l /dev listing

with 40, 13 in the size field

ls -l /dev|grep '40, *13'

HTH,
