rc.M reports failed devices are not directories: uevent: Not a directory
When booting about 20 lines like this one:
/etc/rc.d/rc.M line 93: /dev/.udev/failed/devices@firstname.lastname@example.org/uevent: Not a directory
I found something similar in linuxpackages.net
This happened after upgrading udev. I commented these
lines in rc.M:
my sdX's with no problem, but I don't like that
solution. That snippet look pretty important to
just comment it.
Is there any other solution?
I've had the same problem. I previously used Gentoo, and when a Windows scandisk somehow corrupted my linux partition, I decided not to go through all the compile times, and went with Slack 11. The fresh install worked nicely, but I want an SMP kernel, so I used the same config file from gentoo. Everything went great, except the error in rc.M line 93. I just commented that whole line out though. As for the real fix, I don't know. Just thought I'd let you know you're not alone, and so far, commenting it out doesn't affect anything for me :)
I really thaught I was alone on this one. After 2 or 3
views of my posts I usually get answers, and after 45
views in this one I really thaugt I was alone.
But you know, further reading and searching has pay good
results so far. I'm not sure if the solution I figured
is the best. So I'm going to post what I did (and worked)
and if any script porgrammer is arround you can tell me
if this is my best choice,or something better could be
I read the /usr/share/doc/udev-103/RELEASE-NOTES document
in the section: udev 099, as suggested here. And I wandered
if inserting the `udevtrigger' instruction somewhere should
work. So I commented and inserted this way in rc.M:
The only thing I have to figure out now is a SCSI error
thats coming out after LUNS scanning.
Thank you so much for the information. I'll give that a try as well! :)
As I wrote at the end of post #3 I was having
a little problem with a SCSI error.
Error: SCSI subsystem not active.
This error was produced by the new /etc/rc.d/rc.scanluns
script. I opened /etc/rc.d/rc.scanluns on an editor and reading
the comments I remembered that I enabled the `scan all LUNs'
as built-in when I compiled my kernel to use my memory
card-reader since those media readers use the USB and
SCSI systems, so the rc.scanluns script is not needed as
I understood from the script comments.
To configure `scan all LUNs' In SCSI support when compiling
kernel from source enable this:
script, and comment this:
