udev boot error
 
I'm running suse 10 and I have the following error message during boot:

<3>udev[2057]: run_program: open /dev/null failed
<3>udev[2057]: run_program: exec of program '/sbin/modprobe' failed

I need to configure some hardware which I failed to and I assume this has to do something with it. Any ideas what these error messages can be and a possible solution perhaps?

I think with udev, /dev/null and /dev/console still need to be static...
Try:
Code:

# mknod -m 660 /dev/null c 1 3

Typing it in, the message says the dev/null file already exists, so it must be something else...
Thanks anyway,
alma

I think you problem is that that /dev/null has permissions like: crw-rw----. It should be crw-rw-rw-.... I'm having problems with udev my self..
