[Solved] Udev 128-5 broken?

Hello.

Udev 128-5 seems to be broken. After updating 2008-10-07 my system was unable to boot. I got an ext3/superblock related error, probably as device nodes wasn't created. Being dropped to the maintenance shell I noticed /dev was almost empty except from console tty and a few others.  Downgrading to 119-1 solved it, whereas reinstalling udev-128-5 did not. Am I wrong on assuming udev is the reason?

Cheers.

Well, problem solved. I thought I had a fully synced/latest system, turned out I had initscripts-splash 2007.11-1 from community installed. Having replaced it with initscripts 2008.09-2 + updating to latest udev my system boots fine.
Cheers

not mine, udev-128 and 130 does not boot correctly (no network, no sound, no mouse)
revert to udev-119 and I boot ok.

EDIT : forget me, I've install initscripts and it replaces -spash too.

everything ok

This one bit me, too.
Shouldn't udev depend on a particular version of initscripts, since older initscripts break it?
