    udev-030 is looking for detached_state somewhere inside /sys tree,
    but somewhere between 2.6.12-rc3 and -rc5 detached_state is gone.

    I installed udev-058 and it fixed things.

    It took me more than hour to figure out, from 02:00 to after 03:00.

    Greg, any plans to distribute udev and hotplug within kernel tarballs
    so that people do not need to track such changes continuously?

    After all, udev is tied to /sys layout which changes with kernel
    and also udev is vital for properly functioning boot process
    (I mean: if udev breaks, you cannot easily debug it: your box
    is unusable since lots of things gone avry like gettys not having ttys
    to let you log in...).
