User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)
Description of problem:
udev is not being started by rc.sysinit due to a change in udev,
leading to all kinds of mysterious failures while booting.
In /etc/rc.sysinit, the line stating
if [ "$USE_UDEV" = "yes" -a "$UDEV_RAMFS" = "yes" ]; then
has to be changed to
if [ "$USE_UDEV" = "yes" -a "$UDEV_TMPFS" = "yes" ]; then
to keep track with udev.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: udev is not started
Expected Results: udev must start and fix device permissions
fixed in 7.76 or so.
Ok, new changes.
Bill, please change the rc.sysinit udev part to this:
[ -x /sbin/start_udev ] && /sbin/start_udev
no need to source udev.conf, just call it.
The second start_udev, after remount rw should be removed also.
Already done in current builds.
