Post subject: many errors at boot (udev)  PostPosted: 26.04.2011, 12:45

Yesterday I have dist-upgraded after a week. I know about the problems of udev, but I have many error messages like these:

      Quote:
exec of program 'net.agent' failed
exec of program 'cdrom_id --export /dev/sr0' failed
exec of program 'mtp-probe /sys/....../usb....' failed


I have also the message that udev cannot find /run/udev and so is reverting to .udev or something like this. But maybe this is normal for the moment.

Also noticed two of those errors appearing with the very first boot messages (just after leaving the grub menu) since yesterday's D-U:
      Code:
udevd[640]: exec of program `net.agent` failed
udevd[749]: runtime directory `/run/udev` not writeable, for now falling back to `/dev/.udev`


(aptosid 32bit)

Same for me: aptosid XFCE 64 bit.
After the same d-u I've also noticed that all the partitions on the hd are mounted at boot, despite the fact that "noauto" is written in fstab.
Aside from that, there are no other problems for me.

This bug report suggests these errors messages are, for the moment, to be expected.

http://osdir.com/ml/debian-bugs-closed/ ... 02915.html

ie. to do with udev and the coming /run directory.

Could my problem with mounted partitions be related to udev?
I see nothing strange in dmesg, /var/log/messages and /var/log/boot.

I have the same error on my xfce amd64

      Code:
> udevd: error: runtime directory '/run/udev' not writable, for now falling
> back to '/dev/.udev'


and some others, but the system works fine.

These are unrelated and harmless (the errors are old, only the message
is new).

I have the same error messages on startup, but also a real malfunction which may (or may not) be related: My external CD-Drive will not be mounted.

do you have /run directly under / ? if so, rm -r it. (not the one under /var)

Same here, not working keyboard, mouse, net...
But thanks devil, I removed /run directory (from other partition) and reboot.
Now it's fine, everything seems OK.

Thanks devil, but no /run on root level here. Any other ideas highly appreciated!
Greetings!

And the messages are still harmless.. Wink
See previous post in this topic.
So unless something is clearly broken, we can ignore those messages - until they've sorted it out.
