udev woes

Maybe its udev, Maybe its just me :)

Switched to udev a couple of days back at home & work. First up, my X refused to start up saying it couldn't find the nvidia module. lsmod showed the module loaded, so I was wondering....& there! udev. According to the nvidia-kernel ebuild, entries are automatically created in /dev for NVidia with udev and for some reason that hadn't happened in my case. Nothing in /dev that had to do with nvidia when atleast nvidia0 & nvidiactl should have been present. Had to run the NVmakedevices.sh script and voila, everything works.

My sound isn't working on udev. Alsa can't open stuff, nothing seems to be wrong in /dev there, but it can't find default. I'm working on solving that.

Now, in the office, its putting the USB CD-RW somewhere else, I'm unable to locate that either. Not /dev/sda...

Teething troubles, but pissing off. I'm back to 2.6.8-gentoo-r10 with devfs. I'm not in the mood to sit & solve these right now. And more than anything else, the Alsa issue is baffling me.
