After being away from my home PC for almost half an year, I have decided to update my system. Consequently, now I have some weird problems with pulseaudio and udev. Pulseaudio does not enlist the internal audio device after restarting the system. It could be solved by killing pulseaudio, but I am personally looking for a better solution. On the other hand, I have one of the common problems with openrc, where it does not mount /dev/pts properly. Adding dev-umount to sysinit does not solve the problem for some reason and it is still not possible to use gnome-terminal. However, mounting /dev/ptmx to /dev/pts works, but it is still too inconvenient to manually mount it every time.

Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

emerge -auvND --with-bdeps=y world && revdep-rebuild && dispatch-conf

expect problems. This will probably fail. 6 months is really really pushing it for a system update. To kill a fly with a sledge hammer, you can try emerge -e system world && dispatch-conf

Well, I have resolved most of the dependency hell beforehand, so that is not my main issue. However, if I don't find a solution, I might consider rebuilding everything.

P.S. As suggested by someone in the bug report (https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=438932), I have unmasked udev-init-scripts-17-r1 and now half of the issues are resolved. Now I have to figure out why pulseaudio is failing to initialize the internal audio device at its first run.

P.P.S. It turns out that the second problem is somehow related to timidity, so I have disabled it and everything is working fine.
