One of my Ubuntu machines (the one that runs the MAME cabinet) is broken due
to udev insanity. Here's a list of URLs that might throw some light on what's
going on - but thus far no proffered solution has worked. I'm frustrated and
deprived of sleep...
My post on Ubuntu forums...
...so I'm stuck in a BusyBox shell unless I boot to my trusty knoppix CD and
chroot onto /dev/hda1. I've been able to put some older 2.6.15 ubuntu kernels
on there with apt-get whilst chrooted but I think udev is broken for them
The sticky thread on Ubuntu forums...
A couple of online arguments in launchpad where denial and acusations fly...
Another thread with similar udev issues...
Some discussion pre-dating the problem(?)...
I want to stick a much earlier kernel on there that will play nice with the
existing dapper setup.
