This is a good pay off. Eudev has worked spendidly in testing, but i have yet to ahve the libudev issue yet and nothing of mine is rebuilt for libudev.so.1. I just symlinked libudev.so.0 to libudev.so.1 and nothing has been broken.

almost beta

Did a install/update and then update to current.

During boot my box hangs at fb: switching to radeondrmfb from VESA VGA.

Using nomodeset at boot would allow the system to boot. But as we know, graphics quality suffers.

The fix was installing/building a 4.2.6 kernel using the current kernel config.

My video card is a AMD/ATI RV100 Radeon 7000/ Radeon VE.

Mmm, last alsa update seems to break apulse :

bash-4.3$ ALSA lib confmisc.c:674snd_determine_driver) could not open control for card 0
Code:
ALSA lib conf.c:3339:(snd_config_hooks_call) function snd_config_hook_load_for_all_cards returned error: Argument invalide
ALSA lib confmisc.c:674:(snd_determine_driver) could not open control for card 1
ALSA lib conf.c:4260:(_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_card_driver returned error: Argument invalide
ALSA lib confmisc.c:392:(snd_func_concat) error evaluating strings
ALSA lib conf.c:4260:(_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_concat returned error: Argument invalide
ALSA lib confmisc.c:1251:(snd_func_refer) error evaluating name
ALSA lib conf.c:4260:(_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_refer returned error: Argument invalide
ALSA lib conf.c:4739:(snd_config_expand) Evaluate error: Argument invalide
ALSA lib pcm.c:2267:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM cards.pcm.default
[apulse] [error] do_connect_pcm, snd_pcm_open, Argument invalide
[apulse] [error] do_connect_pcm, snd_pcm_open, Argument invalide
I recompiled apulse but it didn't change.
I use the following apulse command to start skype :

APULSE_CAPTURE_DEVICE="hw:2,0" APULSE_PLAYBACK_DEVICE="plug:'dmix'" apulse skype &

It used to work well up until the last current upgrade.
