I did an emerge -uD world and now have the following problem :?
My system still boots but udevd fails to start. From searching on this forum I have found that I need to set CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED in my kernel. So I compiled a new kernel, but then I wanted to mount /boot and got the error that /dev/sda1 doesn't exit. Is there any way to mount my boot partition so I can copy my new kernel? I can still compile things, but I can't start net.eth0.

BTW this is on a tiny Acer Aspire One netbook, running stable x86. It's the first time in 8 years of Gentoo that I think I have f*cked my system...

AlfaGTV,

Heh, /dev/sda1 doesn't exist because udev failed to run, so its not been created.
You can try to manually create the device node. /dev/sda1 should look like
Code:
$ ls -l /dev/sda1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 1 Apr 16 13:50 /dev/sda1


The format of the command is
Code:
mknod [OPTION]... NAME TYPE [MAJOR MINOR]

so
Code:
mknod /dev/sda1 b 8 1
chown root:disk /dev/sda1
chmod 660 /dev/sda1
will make the node and set the ownership and permissions as expected.

Thank you :)

I was able to mount my boot partition and install a new kernel unfortunately udev still doesn't start :x I'm going to search the forum a bit more to find some answers.

AlfaGTV,

Are you sure the new kernel booted?

Look at the build date and time in
Code:
uname -a

New kernel 2.6.32-gentoo-r7 works :roll: Only udev doesn't start.

AlfaGTV,

As you use baselayout2, is udev in the sysinit runlevel?
Its no longer started by the init script.

Yep udev is in sysinit runlevel. Well it was, I just downgraded udev and baselayout and everything works. I'm going to try and upgrade in a couple of weeks, I'm leaving on a short vacation on sunday. No time to play with it :)
