Fwd: Re: [gentoo-user] udevd boot messages

Pandu Poluan

Mes amis,

Please be informed that the latest baselayout update might very likely needs a reboot.

Here's some info I repost from Gentoo-user list. For the full thread, check out its archive.

/lib is a symlink pointing to /lib64. /lib64/udev/rules.d is ok
with all the rules that udevd does not find at boot.

No I would guess it was because of the upgrade of
sys-apps/baselayout to 2.1-r1. Things got crazy here with that
upgrade. I had to re-merge every package with files under /lib/ In
 your case re-merging udev should to the trick.

The package clearly informed you that you need to reboot for things to
work properly

"You should reboot the system now to get /run mounted with tmpfs!"

Have a look on pkg_postinst() function in that ebuild. You chose to
ignore it and this is why you had these problems after the update.

I asked about this a while back but never got a decent answer...

*Especially* for servers, there really, REALLY needs to be a way to see this kind of warning BEFORE updating... ie, the warning should be printed to the screen during an 'emerge -pvuDN world' or something, so I know that a reboot will be required for this update.
