udev error on boot
 
I've been running slackware 12 for some time now, and yesterday, the lights goes out, and when I turn the computer on again, udev spams me with errors.
The errors say sth like cant delete file, cant create file, complaining about read-only filesystem.

I have no idea what to do, can anyone help me?
Thanks

Hi,

Post the errors! Which kernel?

Hi, the kernel is the default slackware 12 kernel, cant remember the name right now, but its out of the box.

The errors are( Just the first and the ones that repeat all the time till the root partition is mounted rw )
Code:

cp: target `/lib/udev/devices/zero` is not a directory
When udev starts
Code:

udevd[1114]: add_matching_files: unable to open `/dev/.udev/rules.d`: No such file or directory
add_to_rules: PHYSDEV* values are deprecated ... Please fix it in /etc/udev/rules.d/so-udev-def.rules
mkdir: cannot create directory `/.udev`: Read Only File System

Then, the 2 messages that repeat hunders of times:
Code:

delete_path: rmdir(/dev/.udev/failed) failed: Rea Only File System
delete_path: rmdir(/dev/.udev/queded) failed: Rea Only File System

Also, I was checking logs, and I found that swaret updated udev a few days before ( I'm definitly taking it out of the cron ).

Thanks

Edit:
I was able to rollback the udev version, and it works great now, or at least like it did before. Sorry for any trouble.

Hopefully you learned an important lesson about putting Slackware -current in your package repo list with Swaret.
