chown and mknod failed

I have recently finished compiling CLFS on my amd64 computer. I have Ubuntu Linux already install on the same machine. My CLFS uses kernel and seems to be having problems with udev. When I try to boot into that installation I get a bunch on messages that say:
udevd-event[...]: udev_node_mknod: mknod( ... ) failed: Read-Only File System
and some that say:
udevd-event[...]: unlink_secure: chown( ... ) failed: no such file or directory
I know almost nothing about udev. Is there anyone who knows what is causing this error?
