    Done, updated our kernel to 3.6.11 and synced a bunch of new libraries up (one server won't blow up when we reboot it now :wink:). Thanks for your patience! The guesstimated downtime was 5 minutes per server.

      Forget udev; static /dev all the way!

      I have to leave for work at 5 pm PST. If the server restarts, that should signal me to go. :grin:

      eudev needs to mature a bit more before we go to it.
      I may do this a bit early, then :wink:

      Nah, static /dev. I believe I created the device nodes in the init script `mknod', and then you wouldn't need udev for anything. It's called static mainly because the device nodes aren't created or destroyed as you need them (you could manually delete or create them whenever though), but usually are always there e.g. you don't hear any sound e.g. I'll always have /dev/sdb even though I have no external hard drive or flash drive plugged in where if I had udev, it would create /dev/sdb when I plug in my external hard drive or flash drive.

      Rereading this, I realized you said systemd needs it. I have no idea what that is to be honest. I haven't actively kept up with the GNU/Linux community for like a year so I expect that is something new, distro specific, or just something I didn't learn while I used Archlinux.
