After update init scripts systemd finishes with error:

Code:

 Error getting authority: Error initializing authority: Could not connect: No such file or directory


then it requests admin password.

When I enter root pass I can view journal (journalctl) and found that systemd tried to mount /proc/bus/usb and failed. But there is no usb directory in the /proc/bus/ path.

At the same time usb works well and I can use flash disk from console.

But network does not work. When I try e.g. "systemctl start wicd" the console is reset and give "error getting authority" again. And it requests root pass again.

Inspecting internet I do not understand is it normal that I have no 'usb' directory in /proc/bus or it is something wrong with my udev. I would be very thankful for any advices.

If you have a /proc/bus/usb entry in fstab, please remove/comment it out, it's no longer needed if you have a recent userland as that data is now available in /sys.
