First of all, let me start by recalling that the Gentoo Council[1] has
approved some years ago the CoC (Code of Conduct)[2] that should be
followed by anyone posting to Gentoo's public communication mediums.

As such, I would kindly like to ask everyone on this thread to "calm
down" and to please try to reply in a respectful manner to any poster on
this ml.

I have to agree with other posters in this ml that your tone when you
started this thread asking for help wasn't the best one.
Thank you for the apology you've sent to the list about your tone. Let's
try to move forward and see if / how we can help you.

As I've stated above, I kindly ask everyone participating in this thread
to please watch the tone.

We have some people with the ability to moderate the mailing lists, but
we prefer to leave that for last resort only.
Many Gentoo developers are subscribed to the many lists and they may at
any time intervene as they see fit.

PS - Lindsay, two last notes about your issue and your time constraints.
This type of issue might be easier to diagnose on IRC (one good place is
#gentoo in the freenode network) where a short intense session may prove
to be quicker in the end. Also, I haven't seen anyone mention that the
latest udev versions react *very* badly to CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED_V2.
So be sure to check if you disable that as iirc udev will refuse to
create the proper device nodes if that kernel option is active.

PPS - If you decide to test our IRC support, feel free to poke me in any
channel or to /msg me in private.
