Bug#346543: udev netlink problems with kernel 2.6.15 on alpha
Since I updated to latest udev (testing) and
linux-image-2.6.15-1-alpha-generic version 2.6.15-3 (will try
2.6.15-4 next time I reboot this machine) it seems to work without
errors. In upstream 18.104.22.168/.2 were a lot of changes to netlink
code, so it could be that it was a kernel bug that only appeared in
the alpha architecture.
For a short time my udev-fixup script was run too late in my rcS.d
(because latest udev changed to order of init-script-loads) and
nevertheless it worked, so I realized that it was fixed.
Please do not close the bug, I try it again without any fixup script
(that sets the sysctls) and the latest kernel and close the bug then.
