I modified /etc/devfsd.conf and removed all oldcompat and original "new" stuff, then I changed fstab using the new name of partitions, I did these
just for fun. But the noisy message disappeared.

if you like, try it. :wink:

The files I changed are
/etc/devfsd.conf
using only the new names
/etc/fstab
using /dev/discs/discX/partX
/boot/grub/menu.lst
using root=/dev/ide/hostX/busX/targetX/lunX/partX
if you have cdrw, then you still have to set hdX=ide-scsi

btw, you have to make symbol link for some devices like mixer dsp for
application like xmms to work. but it should be easy, just add some lines
in devfsd.conf

good luck, I am now using VMware (I did those changes in a real gentoo
system), so it is hard to copy what I changed out.
