Confirmed. Udev was upgraded last december from 0.8x to 1.0.3. This was the first time the machine have rebooted since December. And I also found similar "udevd breakpoint" messages on /var/log/messages some minutes after that upgrade.

Well, the problem now is that the CD I had does not detect the network card, even modprobing the tulip module manually. So no card, no emerge... It is an old CD (2004.2) so now I am downloading a newer image (2006.1). I hope it works with it.

The partitions are OK.

Thanks. I just found in Google that a Debian user had a similar problem and had to upgrade the kernel to 2.6.17. I will try that once I get the image....and the network card working :-)
