Description of problem:

udev doesn't start with kernel-2.6.8-1.624, which causes all sorts of

any mail via IMAP or Exchange).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot that kernel.
Actual results:
This works fine in kernel-2.6.8-1.610.

Expected results:
Should bring up udev.

Do you see messages about it crashing or exiting abnormally?

See also bug 136005 and bug 136058.
Comment 2 Bojan Smojver 2004-10-18 00:57:43 EDT
No, I don't. I actually had a look at those bugs, but they didn't
strike me as the same as the one I reported.

Actually, when I flick back to kernel-2.6.8-1.610, all is OK. Which
would suggest it's a kernel related thing.

BTW, I have the same problem with the 624 kernel on two different
machines. One notebook, one desktop. These are the only two machines
running FC3 devel, so it's pretty consistent.

I must have been on drugs when I wrote the above comment. Sorry :-(

Here is the output:

Starting udev
ERROR: /sbin/udevstart exited abnormally
Loading jbd.ko module
Loading ext3.ko module
ERROR: /sbin/udevstart exited abnormally
Creating root device

So, I'm guessing this is a duplicate of the bugs mentioned above. I'll
try to mark it as such (not sure if I have necessary permissions to do

Note that in my case I cannot replicate the same thing with
