    udev or devfs


    How do I know if I'm actually running udev? I've emerged udev and made sure that devfs isn't autoloaded in the kernel. Now what? I've followed the gentoo guide to the letter... I'm running gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.10-r6

    Am I done?

    To start udev, issue the following command:
    Code:
    udevstart
    This should start the udev daemon and create the device nodes automatically.

    Assuming it wasn't already running. If the system boots ok, and stuff works, I think you can assume it works fine.
