No, I mean if you restore that Stage, if you have a Framebuffer and other stuff like Gensplash, the Stage 4 doesn't backup at all the /dev directory and other stuff.

With the Stage 5, you don't have this kind of problem.
Not to beat a dead horse (since this got discussed in another thread) but it seems that backing up the entire /dev to get a couple nodes is overkill.

Also, the stage4 guide tells you how to create all the basic /dev nodes you'd need, including the tty1 that gensplash uses (just this one is marked optional since only gensplash uses will need it.

In fact, I know that too, but for someone who doesn't want to take extra care, then it's the simpliest way :P

Touché, though it would seem like a good idea to remove the unneeded nodes from the archive (and that'll likely be a significant space-saver since nearly ever node is unneeded for the archive).
