Hi Gentoo experts ;)

Recently I broke my installation, and I don't know what can I do to fix it. I need some assistance.

After a recent world upgrade, I noticed that at boot some of the services are not starting: alsasound, lm_sensors and net.enp0s14 (I'm on OpenRC, if that matters). alsasound and lm_sensors are not starting because the required kernel modules are not loaded automatically. net.enp0s14 is not starting because the network interface lost its "predictable" name, and it went back to being eth0 (no problem with device driver in this case, because it's compiled into the kernel, not as a module).

There is no problem with loading the kernel modules with modprobe, and once it's done the lm_sensors and alsasound can be started manually. For the network interface, as a temporary workaround I have created net.eth0 service (by making a symlink net.eth0 -> net.lo inside /etc/init.d/ just like with enp0s14), and added it to the default runlevel.

When I started X11, I noticed that my mouse and keyboard were not working. The system was otherwise responsive (I was able to ssh from a different machine and kill the XServer).

In this last world update, sys-fs/udev was upgraded from 225-r1 to 233. Loading appropriate kernel modules is udev responsibility, right? So maybe this udev update is the root cause of my problems?

I thought about reverting udev to previous version by setting a mask >sys-fs/udev-225-r1 in /etc/portage/package.mask. But when I did emerge -auvDN @world again, it tried to pull eudev, which resulted in a conflict:

Code:
# emerge -auvDN @world

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

And I'm not sure if this is the correct way to address this issue anyway. I'd rather fix the issue with udev-233.

I went through the contents of /var/log/, but didn't find out any enlightening error messages related to udev. Only the prints that said that services could not be started, due to kernel modules not being loaded (duh). Could someone give me some pointers? How can I diagnose this further? Is there something I should have done prior to updating udev to this version? I didn't see anything in news items, nor here https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Udev/Upgrade_Guide

FWIW, here's my emerge --info:

No help here for your udev/eudev problem, but to load your modules add a line(s) to /etc/conf.d/modules like this:
Code:

modules="radeon e1000e snd_hda_intel acpi_cpufreq ohci_pci ehci_pci"
modules+=" k10temp f71882fg "

Using your own modules, of course.

In the past all modules were loaded without specifying them. I do not know when or why the change was made.

EDIT:
And make sure to
"rc-update add modules boot"

It seems you also need to mask >=virtual/libudev-232.
Anyway, why not migrating to eudev ?

I'm not opposed to using eudev. I'm using it in Slackware installation on another machine, and I've never had any trouble with it.

I guess I have never given it much thought. My Gentoo was installed in April 2011, and has never been reinstalled. That was before udev -> eudev fork. So I just always had udev, and it was fine... Until now, that is. If there ever was a notice that switching to eudev is preferred, I must've missed it.

But, come to think of it, since I'm running OpenRC I actually *should* migrate to eudev, right?

Hm yes, sounds like udev is not runing :-/

Please take a look on
Code:
/etc/init.d/udev status
rc-update show sysinit
and
ps aux | grep udev


And yes, for a downgrade test
Code:
emerge -av1 =sys-fs/udev-225-r1 =virtual/libudev-215-r1
should work.

And btw, your Kernel (3.4.113-gentoo-r1) is very old,
I'm not sure if these compatible with current udev versions.
(I think, a Kernel update would be fine :))

if you're not running systemd, you should migrate away from udev. gentoo standard is openrc with eudev.

Ran across it by accident yesterday when reading the wiki. The change is because I switched from eudev to mdev.

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Mdev Bookmark it in case udev/eudev gives too many problems. But be sure to migrate at least to eudev. Straight udev will keep trying to pull systemd onto your system. Like a virus.

Actually, looks like it is. When I was looking through the contents /var/log/ I didn't see any error messages related to udev failure. And:
Code:
# /etc/init.d/udev status
 * status: started

# rc-update show sysinit
                devfs | sysinit
                dmesg | sysinit
     opentmpfiles-dev | sysinit
                sysfs | sysinit
                 udev | sysinit
         udev-trigger | sysinit

# ps aux | grep udev
root       389  0.0  0.0   3628   480 ?        Ss   Jul22   0:00 /lib/systemd/systemd-udevd --daemon


And yes, the kernel is a bit dated... But still supported by Gentoo, as far as I know. ;)
Please don't laugh, but it's the last kernel to support official drivers of my old NVIDIA GPU... And nouveau just doesn't work well for me on this machine.

I will perform udev downgrade test as Josef.95 suggested, and try to migrate to eudev. But I'm currently away from that machine, and I don't want to perform such changes remotely. I'll get back with results as soon as I have anything meaningful to say (even if it's just "hey, eudev works fine!", which would be the best outcome IMO).

Thank you all for your help so far.

OK, looks like it's working now.

First I went back to udev-225-r1, as Josef.95 suggested. After reboot things went back to normal: ALSA modules were loaded, my "predictable" network interface was there again, and peripherals were working in X. Well, almost: modules required by lm_sensors are still not loaded, but I believe this is an unrelated issue.

After this downgrade test I migrated to eudev by following the procedure outlined here: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-7369696.html#7369696. The difference was that etc-update didn't report any configuration files that needed updating, and also emerge @preserved-rebuild didn't indicate that anything needs rebuilding.

So, almost complete success. As a workaround for the lm_sensors module issue, I added the required modules to /etc/conf.d/modules, as Tony0945 suggested. I'll investigate this issue further, and if I can't find a solution I'll start another thread.

Thank you all for assistance.
