How to disable udev for a faster boot?
I am trying to make gentoo boot faster and in my searching I came across this article lwn.net/Articles/299483/ Booting Linux in five seconds. One of the things they did was revert to a "persistent, old-school /dev directory so that boot doesn't depend on udev". I would like to know how to do this, but when I searched for disabling udev all the forums say that its a bad idea. All I want to know is how to make a static /dev directory. If someone could tell me how to do this or even just point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it.
