udev requires kernal ...>18.104.22.168 notstarted
udev actually makes devices configurable in user space (rather than kernel space), so
it might be worth having it working.
It requires a 2.6 kernel though. So, unless you're planning to upgrade your kernel from
2.4.27-2-386 to the latest stable 2.6 version, you should eliminate udev.
I also read something about not mixing OSS with Alsa. So, if you see any modules for OSS in /etc/modules,
maybe you need to reconfigure the loaded modules.
