Description Horst H. von Brand 2005-10-04 11:53:44 EDT
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):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot
Actual results:
udev start fails, no X (because of missing /dev/mem), ...
Once booted, start_udev returns immediately, and the missing nodes are created.

Expected results:
Normal boot

Additional info:
The very same setup has failed for several udev versions, I did not dig deeper
until today. On i386 it works fine.
Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2005-10-13 07:16:14 EDT
does udev-0.69-10 fix the problem?
Comment 2 Horst H. von Brand 2005-10-13 13:31:49 EDT
Yes, sorry for the delay. I believe it was fixed in udev-0.69-9
