Description Andrew Hurst 2008-05-02 11:52:03 UTC
'Networking->Network options->Unix domain sockets' (CONFIG_UNIX) must be enabled for udev to work.
'Networking->Network options->Packet socket' (CONFIG_PACKET) needs enabling for dhcpcd to work.
These are both disabled by default in gentoo-sources-2.6.24-r4, and neither is mentioned in the handbook, so stage 3 installers will be wondering why it didn't work.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Follow online handbook for stage 3 install.
2. Boot and watch udev crap out.
3. Fix udev with a recompile, install dhcpcd and watch it crap out on boot instead.

Actual Results:  
Non-starting system.  udev is needed to mount /
Gives error:
init_udevd_socket: error getting socket: Address family not supported

Expected Results:  
System starting ok

Might want to be Major, as anyone installing through online docs will encounter this.
