Help with udev


Hi

Have just upgraded my debian kernel from 2.6.7 to 2.6.8
On boot I get the following warning message

warning: .udevdb already exists on the old /dev

I've checked this forum and google but can't find anything helpful

The system seems to be running ok but will the above cause me problems if so can someone explain how I can fix it

Thanks in advance

What does your /etc/udev/udev.conf look like?

Hi

I have removed kernel 2.6.7 but it seems to have a link to the old /dev when I boot the new kernel
Below is my udev.conf file.



# udev.conf
# The main config file for udev
#
# This file can be used to override some of udev's default values
# for where it looks for files, and where it places device nodes.


# udev_root - where in the filesystem to place the device nodes
udev_root="/dev/"

# udev_db - The name and location of the udev database.
udev_db="/dev/.udevdb"

# udev_rules - The name and location of the udev rules files
udev_rules="/etc/udev/rules.d/"

# udev_permissions - The name and location of the udev permission file
udev_permissions="/etc/udev/permissions.d/"

# default_mode - set the default mode for all nodes that have no
# explicit match in the permissions file
default_mode="0660"

# default_owner - set the default owner for all nodes that have no
# explicit match in the permissions file
default_owner="root"

# default_group - set the default group for all nodes that have no
# explicit match in the permissions file
default_group="root"

# udev_log - set to "yes" if you want logging, else "no"
udev_log="yes"

# maximum size of the /dev tmpfs
tmpfs_size="5M"

Thanks for the help

Try putting a "u" in fron of "/dev/" for both udev_root & udev_db

udev_root="/udev/"
#
udev_db=""/udev/.udevdb"

Hi Y2K

Thanks for the help
I think it is sorted now
It seems to write a temp file for /dev when using the 2.6.8 kernel using udev and reverts to the original /dev when booting the 2.6.7 kernel
