The title already says what happens... udevstart segmentation faults whenever started.
My system is:
kernel: 2.6.8-gentoo-r4
udev-032

What more information do you need to help?

It was a udev bug. It works with 033 now but my udev installation is corrupt. I'm trying to run a untweked system because my device tarball is not working. There are only about 20 nodes created and the system does not boot, because the /dev/hda is missing...
What could be wrong? :wink:

Use a live cd to boot your system, mount your partition that contains /etc and edit your /etc/conf.d/rc file; specifically setting "RC_DEVICE_TARBALL" to "no", and "RC_DEVFSD_STARTUP" also to "no". My tarball got corrupted during an update of udev and this was the only solution I had. If you have a lot of custom device nodes you *should* be able to change "RC_DEVICE_TARBALL" back to "yes" once you got an initial boot; and it should create a new (non corrupt) tarball; but I haven't tested it myself.

Edit: Thats directed to BugBuster for the record; I have no idea if it'll work with the other problem; and as always do at your own risk and your mileage may varry
