After pckgs update, "ERROR: /sbin/udevstart exited abnormally!" at bootup


Hi everyone!

I have just updated all of the packages installed in my Fedora distro, including the Linux kernel, to 2.6.8-1.624 from 2.6.7-1. I made it using Fedora's distro yum, which automatically identifies updated packages available on the server. As a newbie I updated all of the packages available.

I was using Fedora Core 3 Test 1 (2.90) and updated to Fedora Core 3 Test 3 (2.92).

The problem is that I always receive the following message in the boot up process:
Code:
Uncompressing Linux... OK, bootin the kernel
audit(<some number>) : initialized
Red Hat nash version 4.1.17 starting
ERROR: /sbin/udevstart exited abnormally!
ERROR: /sbin/udevstart exited abnormally!
INIT: version 2.85 booting
Setting default font (larcyrheb-sun16): [OK]
And then the booting process continues.

This is the description in the udevstart man page:
"udevstart walks trough the sysfs device tree and calls udev to create the nodes for every valid device found. It can be used to fill a empty device directory with nodes for all devices currently available on the system."

It seems all the devices in the system are recognized after running this program. Before updating the packages, I had installed some drivers to use the non-Intel Linux support Pentium Centrino (for wireless LAN). By now on, all my setup seems to be useful, because the Centrino is no longer identified in the system.

Does anyone can help me in this issue?

Tks a lot!

Oh, I forgot to mention that I also cannot see my WinXP NTFS partition, setup before and used to be working fine.

I found something related here:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla....cgi?id=136111

Seems to be a bug with kernel-2.6.8-1.624 , must go back to kernel-2.6.8-1.610 .

How can I install a previous version of the kernel with no much pain?
=) Where can I download it? (Sorry, I'm newbie)

Tks in advance!
