Pig_Pen  does anyone have an idea why udev is not populating /dev ? this is 2.6 rc107:42
Rotwangteh penguins drank too much vodka probably [;08:07
estersOr ate too much fresh fish08:15
tilmani cannot load that image08:18
joacimDon't think you should use a flash when taking pictures of your display08:18
Pig_Peni put duct tape over the flash, but it still got though the tape, it is a cheap camera and has no way to disable flash08:19
Pig_Peni set the vga = to 786 so i could read more text when booting since /dev never got populated enough to let me scroll the text, it is a udev error: udevadm[339] error sending message connection refused, i think it is failing because udev is not populating /dev soon enough08:22
tilmandoes your kernel support that netlink stuff?08:23
tilmanjust a stupid guess. otherwise, google for that error message :)08:23
Pig_Pennetlink stuff? such as inotify?08:23
Pig_Penudevadm trigger is not premitted while udev is unconfigured.08:26
tilmannot sure what it's called in .config08:26
*** spaceninja has joined #crux08:29
Pig_Peni have an idea, i am going to see if udevd can be launched before udevadm kicks in, bbiaf08:33
