Talking .udev/ already exists on the static /dev!


Hello,

Last week, I built a new kern 3.4.43 (stable) on my old machine (Compaq nx6110). I made a grub.cfg without any initrd, and when I booted, I saw a Warning saying ".udev/ already exists on the static /dev!". So after reading a lot of articles about udev and devfs, and I found a page explaining how to solve this problem :
http://linux.koolsolutions.com/2009/...ssages-debian/

But I'm not sure this is the best way to solve this, because of the power of udev. At now, I'm thinking about some strange ways to solve it. What I wanna do is to purge my devfs, and then run my linux only with udev. Can you tell me if that is a good idea ?

I'm a bit lost, so if someone has already experimented this problem and has already solved it without removing any /dev/.udev, please explain me your way of fixing


Best regards

I honestly don't know if purging your devfs is the remidy-- sorry.

I'm sure one of our members will know and answer your question.

Why?
If you explain exactly what it is you hope to achieve, it may be easier for someone to offer advice.
