Description Ralf Ertzinger 2004-09-02 13:36:28 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  udev is not started

Expected Results:  udev must start and fix device permissions

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-09-02 15:02:56 EDT
fixed in 7.76 or so.
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2004-09-23 06:34:34 EDT
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.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-09-23 11:36:26 EDT
Already done in current builds.
