[SOLVED] Can't run X after upgrade: libudev.so is missing

I just upgraded my Arch. when I was upgrading I replaced udev with systemd-tools when prompted but after reboot, I get following error after trying 'startx':

/usr/bin/X: error while loading shared libraries: libudev.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

EDIT: I forget to mentoin I have downgraded xorg-server (1.9.4), linux (3.0.7) and xf86-input-evdev (2.5.0)

Re: [SOLVED] Can't run X after upgrade: libudev.so is missing

All packages in the main repos have been properly recompiled for the new udev. So you either didn't do a full upgrade, or you're using third-party repositories. In which case recompile the offending package.

Fast "fix" that works for me:
ln -s /usr/lib/libudev.so.1.0.1 /usr/lib/libudev.so.0

Would you mind to give a hint what the offending package is in this case?

The one that reports the error, of course. In this case, the one containing /usr/bin/X

It's often note even a case for recompiling. It's an out of sync mirror most of the time. Try -Syyu and if that does not work try another mirror. Don't forget that -Syyu instead of -Syu.

It works now when I did ln -s /usr/lib/libudev.so.1.0.1 /usr/lib/libudev.so.0
Thank you

I did Syyu and some packages that had to be updated was not in mirror I sync from... So I guess you are right but I fixed this before tried your advice.

Thanks for the advice. I update several times every day. In my case the problem probably occured due to the downgraded xorg (1.10).

And now you've got a loose symlink floating around your root filesystem, just waiting to cause trouble in the future.

I appreciate your (and Gusars) warning, but recompiling X while being stuck at the console is not everyones pair of shoes.

Re: [SOLVED] Can't run X after upgrade: libudev.so is missing

... and I got this error today and it's preventing my xbmc-eden-pvr-git from running. Recompiled xbmc from a fresh git pull, after -Syyu and reboot - still no dice.

Gonna have to sully my system with the above symlink fix.

[EDIT: Worked. Nice to have xbmc up and running again]

I have google-chrome-beta from AUR and recompiling it didn't help. So I have to resort to that ln command.

This is why I keep a text file tracking such things / "hacks". smile

Aye.

udev is spitting out rules.d errors to the system log, but meh...
