Bug Description

Binary package hint: udev

Booting my stock Jaunty 9.04 x64 server edition from bootable USB flash. The Intel server I am running have 36 hard drives on it, connected via an LSI 3801E SAS controller. I am using the stock LSI mptsas drivers (no special driver). The 36 drives are connected to the LSI controller via SAS JBOD enclosures.

There are at least a few dozen such udevd error messages at boot complaining that the file name is too long. See attached screenshot of my console screen during boot. udev version is 141-1.1.

Changed in udev (Ubuntu):
importance: Undecided → Medium
status: New → Confirmed

    - symlinks to udevadm no longer resolve to the original command
    - rules updates. LP: #281335, LP: #407940, #420015, #426647.

  * Build-depend on gawk, since build fails with mawk.

  * Replace init scripts with Upstart jobs.
  * debian/control:
    - Add missing ${misc:Depends}
    - Bump build-dependency on debhelper for Upstart-aware dh_installinit
