Re: New udev version and required changes

I'm having problems with modules for net 8139 ... I do not know if there is a clash between 8139too & 8139cp never had a problem before udev upgrade  network not working at all

Maybe its a rules permission thing .... modules are loading ok from kernel/initrd

Could it be a kernel problem?

Re: New udev version and required changes

Those using Win4Lin or other apps with no patch for kernel 2.6.15, use the old version udev-068-5, works fine.

Re: New udev version and required changes

indeed it is a kernel problem, that is there since a very long time.
try this in rc.conf
MOD_AUTOLOAD="yes"
MODULES=(!8139too !8139cp 8139too)

Sure, MODULES=() or manual modprobe calls still work. But this setting will disable both cold- and hotplugging, meaning that you have to load all modules yourself.

Re: New udev version and required changes

Well I have tried adding !8139 etc but still nothing

/etc/rc.d/network restart fails
/etc/rc.d/dhcp restart fails

tried dhcpd that restarted network weird....

Could there a problem with init-scripts ?

Re: New udev version and required changes

please send me your rc.conf modprobe.conf and output from lsmod and output from dmesg
thanks

EDIT: and after you did changes to rc.conf keep in mind you have to reboot to see an effect

Re: New udev version and required changes

Just wanted to report that all is well here. I updated and everything works well with MOD_AUTODETECT=yes or MOD_AUTODETECT=no.

BTW, does anyone know what the slhc module is used for? I never loaded it before, but udev seems to load it when booting now. Otherwise, I'm not getting anything that I normally didn't load manualy. Plus, hotplug works well too.

Re: New udev version and required changes

dude you have to have more than one network card lol

(I was told sk98lin was not that good so I went out & got a new lan card ;-) but both seemed to work ok but new udev may not like it )

EDIT Ok seems to have done the trick ....strange never had problem before udev upgrade ??????

Bows low in respect

thanks

Re: New udev version and required changes

/etc/fstab:
/dev/discs/ etc. is no more!
Please update old devfs name scheme to new layout!

I have recently upgraded my system, and everything works find a tweak or two, but can someone explain to me what does this mean? I use /etc/fstab, does that mean i need to change it now???

Re: New udev version and required changes

Everyone uses /etc/fstab, but this particular message is intended for those who still use the devfs naming scheme, which looks like this:

/dev/discs/disc0/part1

If anything in your /etc/fstab resembles this, you need to change to the udev naming scheme - if not, you can ignore the message.

Uh, BTW I'm using a custom kernel!

As it is written in many other places, for a 2.6.15 kernel you need the uevent backport patches from 2.6.16. You can find them in the abs tree in /var/abs/kernels/kernel26/uevent-2.6.15.patch

I patched my kernel but have a permission problem. /dev/hdc (my CD-RW/DVD) has permission for group "disk":

brw-rw----  1 root disk  22,  0 2006-03-18 16:06 hdc

I tryed using "OPTIONS=last_rule" but didn't worked... Any clue?
