Debian Squeeze Udev not working - won't boot
I tried to boot my laptop up this morning and got as far as GDM, but with no mouse movement, and no keyboard. Trying again in normal mode, and in recovery mode, the same thing happens each time. I see a FAILED message at boot coming from udev (something about udev already running), so I assume its' not detecting my hardware. At GDM I can't type in anything, I can't even ^Alt+F to switch to a console, can't do anything at all. I did an aptitude safe-upgrade yesterday but that's it, so I can't imagine what's gone wrong here.
The installation is on a Luks-encrypted LVM partition. I have mounted the root partition from an ubuntu live CD, but the /var/log/boot is empty, and dmesg says nothing unusual about udev. I can't find the error I see on bootup anywhere in the log files.
Thanks in advance
