hard drive is missing from /dev at boot, even if it's actually in mtab

Hi,

  I have custom compiled kernel, that was working very well so far. Recently there must been some upgrades I didn't noticed, because I cannot boot my kernel any more.

  Here's what happens with my kernel:
  - Root is /dev/sda2 with ext4
  - Boot starts off well, /dev/sda2 is mounted according to the log
  - when checking file systems, boot stops saying that the partition has some problems, log in as root and fix it
  - when I log in, check /etc/mtab, /dev/sda2 listed just as there should be, I can see the whole filesystem, and everything. But /dev/ is missing all the sda entries ....

  When I boot the official kernel:
  - Everything is mounted, filesystem check passed, boots well....

The reason I think it's a recent change not my kernel is wrong, because downgrading my self-compiled kernel to a version that I used successfully before, that has the same issue as well....

Any ideas?

Add it into fstab. Should fix it.

Sure, my mount options are listed in fstab...

But this does not explain why is the entry missing from /dev and then how can I still see the contents but not boot...

Fu..! I´ve got the same problem. I just made a update and  now i am out...

I am missing my sda* entries with my custom kernel! The update broke my system!!!!

Is there a nice broken glibc or something like that?
