udev 0.87-1 driving me crazy.
Sorry for the subject.
Yesterday night I saw a new backports update: udev 0.87-1, and I happily
checked it for upgrading.
This morning, when I turned the computer on , I found myself with the
boot message 'can't find /dev/hda5' (which is where I've got my root).
After a couple of desperate hours (I can't afford losing the system),
where I downgraded udev to 0.84-1 (which worked well for me), and some
dpkg-reconfigure linux-kernel_2.6.15-1 I got my system booting again.
Now it takes much , much more to boot . Don't know if there is something
new in initrdramfs or what. And ...
most of my /dev/* have the wrong permissiones. I can't use sound, my
mouse's device changed, I can not plug my usb mouse anymore ... I have
to manually set chmo d o+w on /dev/null (to get Xorg work), /dev/tty*
/dev/pty* (to get xterm work) and chmod o+r /dev/random /dev/urandom (to
get ssh-agent work).
I just can't get what's going on. I played with 0.84 and 0.87 versions
on udev. I've googled a little and didn't found too much, I still think
I shouldn't have to manually trich the udev.rules, since in previous
versions everything worked smooth.
Does anyone of you have gone through the same?? Some light on this??
