Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 169867
udev doesn't start on boot, can be started later
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:14 EST
Description of problem:
On booting x86_64 (fully up-to-date rwahide) starting udev takes a /long/time
and fails. Letting the machine boot and starting udev by hand (start_udev) gives
a working udev.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
udev start fails, no X (because of missing /dev/mem), ...
Once booted, start_udev returns immediately, and the missing nodes are created.
The very same setup has failed for several udev versions, I did not dig deeper
until today. On i386 it works fine.
does udev-0.69-10 fix the problem?
Yes, sorry for the delay. I believe it was fixed in udev-0.69-9
