I was using 126.96.36.199 for a long time until i decided to finally go for it and make the jump to a newer udev for 2.6.14. I had compiled a 2.6.14 kernel from before but it paused for a long time initializing udev and I learnt that it was necessary to update udev.
SO, today, I downloaded udev 0.76 and compiled and installed it while using my 188.8.131.52 then rebooted into my 2.6.14 and got this unfortunate error:
udevsend[XXXX]: main: error sending message: connection refused
hundreds of times on the screen (with the XXXX replaced by a different number every time). Is this something to do with hotplugging? I have an /etc/hotplug and an /etc/hotplug.d directory. I tried recompiling my 2.6.14 but this made little difference. The machine just about boots but doesn't go any further than GDM. The prompt is fully functional though and it has mounted my disks.
By the way, I use Slackware (10.1 I think). What was all this talk about udev rules? Do I need to change anything? I just left it to use its defaults.
