In the German (not Gentoo-specific) newsgroup de.comp.os.unix.linux.misc, someone mentioned that he upgraded to udev-180 and lost the device nodes for the hard disk (or something like that) because CONFIG_DEVTMPFS was not set in his kernel configuration. He says udev>=180 needs DEVTMPFS set. Is there any issue with Gentoo's udev-181 and CONFIG_DEVTMPFS? If so, you should include it in the documentation. -Matt
