Just for the record: if you're suffering from udev breaking horribly (#621036,#620995), a quick fix is to "rm -rf /run" and restart udev. I saw behaviour like #593083, where it failed to load all modules, leading to not bringing up fbcon (radeondrmfb), no networking, and then X locking up the whole console, requiring a hard reboot to recover. The latter is probably X rather than udev at fault, but triggered by the earlier failure to initialise the hardware. Not sure what causes this, because at boot /run isn't writable and udev falls back to /dev/.udev, but despite falling back correctly, it's still broken for some reason. Regards, Roger -- .''`.
