Same error here.

Comment 2 TGS 2004-10-01 07:53:29 UTC
I should add that the system hangs at this point.

Just updated my system to the latest development as of 3 AM EST, and 
cannot
boot. 

Error follows:

Press 'I' to enter interactive startup.

Making extra nodes: cp: cannot stat '/etc/udev/devices/*': No such 
file or
directory
                                                     [FAILED]
Starting udev:                                       [  OK  ]
Initializing hardware... storage network audio done [  OK  ]
Configuring kernel parameters:

then nothing, since it is frozen.


Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2004-10-01 08:22:19 UTC
seems like /etc/sysctl.conf is b0rken or /proc is not mounted...
the "cp" error does not harm... really...

Comment 4 TGS 2004-10-01 12:20:02 UTC
Update: if I remove the rhgb option from the grub kernel options, I 
can boot.
