problems with latest kernel in repository: udev and UUIDs

Postby francesco » 28/05/2010, 13:19

Using the udev and kernel packages from your repo i had a hard time booting:

- the kernel won't find the root device if specified as a UUID (grub2's default), but only in the form /dev/sdaX

- in the early stage of the boot process i get:

udevadm trigger is not permitted while udev is unconfigured
udevadm settle is not permitted while udev is unconfigured
udevadm settle is not permitted while udev is unconfigured
udevadm settle is not permitted while udev is unconfigured

and then it does nothing for ~15 seconds before i can see any disk activity and the boot process continues.

once booted, everything seems to work, backlight and all.

oh, and the splash screen is pixelated, but i guess that is correct :-)

Strange, the udev packages on my repository just add new Samsung models to the models array, the critical parts of the packages are not touched.

Probably something went wrong during your last system update, I suggest to reinstall the kernel and udev packages:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-image-2.6.32-22-generic libgudev-1.0-0 libudev0 udev
