Unknown filesystem devfs


I just installed Ubuntu64 on my new Prescott 630 --> works like a charm. I have noticed though that the Hypertreading is not enabled.

I have then downloaded the latest kernel (2.6.14.2), recompiled using the Ubuntu config and turned on Hypertreading support.

It works well now, except that I get the error message "Unknown filesystem devfs" at boot. I have seen on forums that devfs is deprecated on kernel > 2.6.13 and it should be replaced by udev.

Does anybody know how to do this? I have no idea how to proceed.

In addition to the message, the forward and backwards button of my mouse doesn't work anymore - I assume it is related to devfs

Any help highly appreciated

Thanks

Ioan

Get rid of devfs in the fstab. Since nothing catastrophic because you have no devices has happened, that should be it.

Nice try, but there is no reference to devfs in /etc/fstab

Any other idea?

Thanks

Ioan

Try to track where that error is generated. I was pretty sure it was because it was trying to mount a devfs filesystem from the fstab. What distro are you running?
