5 BREVITY! We don't want to have to read about what you had on your
6 sandwich for lunch or the fight you had with your girl to get to the
7 meat of what you're trying to say ;-).
9 Since you didn't paste the link to where you found info on the web, I'll
10 go ahead and paste what I found for those who may want to follow up:
14 To be brief, it basically mentions that udev-145 and kernel-2.6.25 are
15 not compatible. Looks like there is a possible patch (to glibc) but the
16 BZ doesn't really say if/when the patch will be applied in Gentoo.
18 Rather than waiting on a fix for nearly-obsolete software, here is my
19 advice:
21 1. Boot into a Live CD/stick/whatever.
22 2. Chroot into your environment as laid out in the Handbook
23 3. Do an emerge --sync
24 4. Upgrade *at least* the following:
25 * kernel sources (might as well configure/compile it too,
26 but don't reboot yet)
27 * linux-headers
28 * glibc (do this *after* linux headers)
29 * udev (do this *after* glibc)
31 Reboot and pray.
33 HTH,
