Today a strange problem happened while installing Gentoo Linux. In fact, it was /dev/shm not existing. Quite disturbing if you rely on a stable build system and python. The latter one bails out because of that.
Having a look at an old fstab file I figured that /dev/shm should be a simple and plain tmpfs:
shm /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
August 2012 was a nice time as Google started to take over Motorola and things actually started to look pretty bright on the smartphone market as everyone was hoping for google taking action. For me it was a reason to purchase the Atrix 4G device which turned out to be great just until they promised and cancelled updates for ICS.
