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. [1] - [2] - 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.

Lindsay, 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. - -- Regards, Jorge Vicetto (jmbsvicetto) - jmbsvicetto at gentoo dot org Gentoo- forums / Userrel / Devrel / KDE / Elections / RelEng -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.17 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - iQIcBAEBAgAGBQJNh/1EAAoJEC8ZTXQF1qEPTloP/Avdlio/gJVvqE4tFp+0N7OK /lgVSB3Vo5emEsXHkyQjOpvHq5jtASLQNQ37e/AD2FnE7w5iVqQ1kHkm8RPHcsWE n739VGlnnAtO8ktsAeO3yxKF55uHE718joHZ4nkI9pjFnW5VDEWDMxp+rj4kSKq5 QVT8InG6wrVKVIrSzwdyQgMwzV0F0L1pSjzJiQ2xG2ZM7pNL5FEeZ8BEOJwFdiS7 zVPupu4jD98uDBaaSl6gUB9zjBAAvhSf07JTY7DLLrNk4XqyfO5HJjOhvCa2OtPH WFlUo/WWoue7cuz6QqTPdHLOBYrCaMmmGVGBmJlnlTyAvNjpACY4BrHkFjui9Ukl NgPmrc+kKJwShNDe7jBIZVibVD0d+5Kxc6KWwdRo7kuIjCW8pq2y67p8bprPsnFA RzxZwwDjzCJuIOuyliy/UgkgtOqDN3VRqQa7KRRobN4Kkq4evMcxlxPNpKD+kgrL ytGvQZ+aDh7L37INn3QGmxxx4Ww7GfA9H/rQAhjc8adnbLgEiH7wub+NU1bQxdK4 SnzmEJm4MhNikH7eakfdD+lKIiOYKRmp1n3s/tsCiyykGgzizgjzF2VKKYMmVxrW vynLdkIq2ckm5V8InHcbbFkFfHU9bGbtOwC7qUf2Y3ABn5YqDjkf2RCW5XDIG2Mh KF7cwCWvUOvVCTIpmiuI =RxDY -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
