Description Fabio Rossi 2006-01-23 13:25:00 UTC
I have upgraded to the last stable system (baselayout-1.11.14-r2 + udev-0.79-r1) and I'm using gentoo-sources-2.6.13-r5. I cannot boot

* Mounting proc at /proc ...
* Mounting sysfs at /sys ...
* Mounting devpts at /dev/pts ...
* Activating (possible) swap ...
Failed to open the device /dev/hde6: No such file or directory

The problem is that udev is not initialized (/dev is empty). Normally I have

* Mounting proc at /proc ...
* Mounting sysfs at /sys ...
* Configuring system to use udev ...
* ... Setting /sbin/udevsend as hotplug agent
* Mounting devpts at /dev/pts ...
* Activating (possible) swap ...

A downgrade to baselayout-1.11.13-r1 solves the problem.

Can you attach your /etc/conf.d/rc file?

rc config file
Comment 4 Greg Kroah-Hartman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-23 14:06:01 UTC
If you change:
to be:

in your /etc/conf.d/rc file, does that help?
Comment 5 Fabio Rossi 2006-01-23 15:03:17 UTC
No, the problem is still there. In these days I'll try to debug the /sbin/rc script
Comment 6 Fabio Rossi 2006-01-25 15:02:01 UTC
I have found the problem: the file /lib/rcscripts/addons/ was missing
Comment 7 Greg Kroah-Hartman (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-01-25 15:48:09 UTC
How was it "missing"?  Did you delete it somehow?
Comment 8 Fabio Rossi 2006-01-26 14:06:30 UTC
I synced Saturday: among the upgrades there was udev-0.79. Some minutes later (RSS feeds) udev-0.79-r1 went stable. Instead of syncing again I got the ebuild of udev-0.79-r1 from the repository (but I didn't download files/ At the end of the merge process the file hasn't been installed. 

Sorry for this bug.
