Hi shilo,

Happy you got it working!

Did you make any changes to any of Piter Punk's packages or special provisions in your kernel config?

I remain somewhat confused why I can't get these udev packages to work on my fairly standard slackware-current installation (with 2.6.15.3) without ending in th Read-Only mount-loop...

Nope. Just used the newest ones from his sight. Also, make sure you look for the .new files and edit configs accordingly.

The new thing was the kernel compile. Don't know why that would fix it, but it did. I downloaded the source for 2.6.15.4. Then I downloaded the config for 2.6.15.3 from Slackware -current. I copied the config over and used "make oldconfig." No other changes. Finished the compile, and it worked.

After that worked, I did a few more recompiles:

I recompiled for my arch. Still worked.

I recompiled for Desktop stuff (prefetch, 1000 hZ, etc.). Still worked.

I recompiled the ALSA section as modules. Still worked (and I got rid of the error mess. at boot for ALSA. I never use the ALSA driver package provided, and this is what I have found to be the easiest way to always have sound working. )

I recompiled the video settings. Still worked.

Somewhat confused? It drove me CRAZY! Hopefully it will work for you if you try the method I used.

I'll keep tweaking on the kernel config to see if I can spot what the problem was. It's kinda difficult to spot with diff at this point because my previous config was so different from the stock.

So far, the little issues that I have are:

One time (only once, which is strange), I got an error that addswap didn't work because my swap device didn't exist. Ofter the boot was completed, the swap was active, though, and the logs showed the swap had been activated. Possibly thesleep isn't ALWAYS long enough? I don't know. Kinda hard to troubleshoot, since it only happened once.

Seems to be an issue with the utopia stack and my USB HDD. This could be related to Gnome, though. The USB HDD is recognized in the logs, but doesn't mount. Also, I wonder if there is a conflict with my USB HDD, because using the stock kernel config results in a strange driver being loaded. The yealink driver gets loaded, too, which is apparently a USB VOIP phone driver. Gotta look into that.

I get a message something like, "/dev/pts could not be mounted. Device busy, non existant, or already mounted." Not a big deal, probably just need some tweaking on /etc/fstab. Works, so I'm guessing it was the "already mounted" problem.

I may use the old ldconfig tweak to speed up the boot. The system is booting so much faster that this is the only thing slowing it down at this point.

Hey, i'm having trouble also after installing 2.6.15.3 kernel from Slackware repository. Should i try to disable hotplug since it always stopped when starting the hotplug services??

Hi,
The Piter Punk packages are working also in my test system.
I put bootchart log images below just as an info.

The first image is a log with conventionla Slackware-current udev(064) system.
* boot time = 49 sec
And the second image is a log with the Piter Punk packages (udev-084).
* boot time = 36 sec
