Subject: [gentoo-user] [UDEV] No network on startup
Date: Mon, 22 Jan 2007 18:07:29

I have updated my gentoo box by typing emerge --update world. This also 
updated udev and now I don't get any network on startup. If I want to 
get a network connection, I'll have to first delete 
"/var/run/" and then run 'dhcpcd eth0'.

On startup I get some udev related error messages:
 >> Letting udev process events ...
 >> udevd-event[668]: wait_for_sysfs: waiting for 
'/sys/class/net/lo/device/driver' failed
 >> udevd-event[1371]: wait_for_sysfs: waiting for 
'/sys/class/net/eth1/device/driver' failed
 >> Finalizing udev configuration ...

However when entering runlevel 3 and dhcpcd is being started it 
successfully assigns an (correct) ip address to eth0. The only problem 
is that the resolv.conf is then empty and so I get no network connection 
at all. I didn't change any configuration files, I just updated udev.

My version of udev is 104 (latest stable version available) and ifconfig 
eth0 tells me

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:15:C5:3A:EB:EB
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          RX packets:615 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:368 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:412119 (402.4 Kb)  TX bytes:45958 (44.8 Kb)

Please don't tell me to downgrade udev as I unfortunately don't know 
which version was my previous merged version :-(.

Please let me know if you need any further informations regarding my system.

Thanks in advance for any help!
