  • Why do you want to add more space to devfs are you seeing any error or just guessing you need more?

  • and how can i add this. I am noob :)

  • devfs is a virtual file system.  You can't add more space to it - it will always take as much space as is required.

    Generally, anything that doesn't have a path starting with /dev as the second field of the fstab or output of "mount" is a special file system.

    Oh, and general good principle to operate by - if it isn't broken, don't fix it (also known as, if you don't have a problem, don't go looking to create one unless you know what you're doing).
