My computer freezes - udev problems?

Lately my computer has started to freeze completely quite frequently. By freeze i mean that i have to reset it, nothing works. I checked the errors.log file and found that every time it crashes error messages like these appears:

It has gotten quite annoying, so i'd really appreciate if someone got a clue!

Re: My computer freezes - udev problems?

just a guess, but maybe a udev problem? It looks like it is having problems creating input files, so that is probably the reason why it is freezing up. I'm not really sure how to fix this but maybe try using devfs and see if that fixes the problem to confirm that this is a udev problem (as long as you haven't installed the 2.6.13 kernel yet).
Sorry if I am not of more help.

Re: My computer freezes - udev problems?

I think you're right regarding udev. I noticed that udev was upgraded to 068-2 the 6th of Sept and i think the problems started to occur the day after. I still run kernel 2.6.12.

Will try with devfs as soon as i figure out how...

Thanks!

I would NOT downgrade to devfs - I would downgrade udev and see if a fixes is applied to the latest release and then update to the latest udev again
