Question Kernel not loading udev at boot


I've been tinkering around with kernels lately, and the last two I've built (v3 and v3.0.1) aren't loading udev (dhcpd doesn't initialize) at boot.

syslog:

Code:
Aug 14 14:08:13 - udevd[1762]: bind failed: Address already in use 
Aug 14 14:08:13 - udevd[1762]: error binding control socket, seems udevd is already running

Aug 14 14:08:31 - console-kit-daemon[1959]: WARNING: Could not acquire name; bailing out


Here is the procedure I followed:

I used the current kernel (2.6.37.6) config.gz to do "make oldconfig" and then tweaked it using "make xconfig". I compiled bzImage and the modules, followed by "make modules_install".

I copied the bzImage, .config, and System.map into /boot. The aforementioned are symlinked there as well.

Code:
[root@x:/boot]# file System.map && file config && file vmlinuz
System.map: symbolic link to `System.map-custom-3.0.1'
config: symbolic link to `config-custom-3.0.1'
vmlinuz: symbolic link to `vmlinuz-custom-3.0.1'
Code:
[root@x:/usr/src]# file linux
linux: symbolic link to `linux-3.0.1/'
This next step, I think, is the part that is causing problems.

I removed the /etc/rc.d/rc.modules symlink from rc.modules-2.6.37.6. I then copied the rc.modules-2.6.37.6 ---> rc.modules-3.0.1 and created a new symlink to it.

Code:
[root@x:/var/log]# file /etc/rc.d/rc.modules
/etc/rc.d/rc.modules: symbolic link to `rc.modules-3.0.1'
Any ideas?

Did you check the process list to see if udev was really running or not?

Code:
root      1501  0.0  0.0  17716  1492 ?        S<s  15:11   0:00 /sbin/udevd --daemon
root      2309  0.0  0.0  17712  1408 ?        S<   15:12   0:00 /sbin/udevd --daemon

This keeps showing up in the syslog too:

Code:
Aug 15 15:16:29 GPC udevd[1766]: bind failed: Address already in use 
Aug 15 15:16:29 GPC udevd[1766]: error binding control socket, seems udevd is already running
I guess the daemon does initialize, but some things are being skipped (dhcpd, wireless/Ethernet cards, usb)..
