    Default 11.1 Slow Boot Process: Unable to open '/dev/.udev/queue'

    OpenSuse 11.1 is often slow to boot on my machine. The process hangs for a considerable time with the following messages:

    Boot logging started on /dev/tty1(/dev/console) at Thu Apr 30 09:39:46 2009
    udevadm[527]: unable to open '/dev/.udev/queue': No such file or directory
    udevadm[528]: unable to open '/dev/.udev/queue': No such file or directory
    udevadm[529]: unable to open '/dev/.udev/queue': No such file or directory

    It doesn't happen every time, but it does happen more often than not. The resulting time delay means a VERY slow boot process.

    I have tried creating a text file manually, but I find that after a re-boot, it has disappeared!

    I would be very grateful for any advice on how to fix this.

    Thanks in advance.

    They're dynamic files created on the fly.

    Please copy paste the result of : rpm -q udev

    Thanks for your quick reply, Chrysantine.

    rpm -q udev gives:
    udev-128-9.7.1

    My machine is a Dell Dimension 3000 desktop. OpenSUSE 11.1 was "clean installed" and I don't think I have done anything silly since I installed it!!

    Hope this helps.

    No, I've still have not found a solution. I must admit I've been concentrating on other problems, and haven't done much on this, but it is very annoying, adding a serious delay to the boot time.

    Your post reminded me, so I've done a bit more experimenting. I unplugged all USB devices (including the built-in hub in the Dell monitor). I didn't get the udev failure message, but still got a similar delay and set of error messages to those which previously followed the udev errors. This would seem to indicate a deeper problem. This is what I get:

    Kernel logging (ksyslog) stopped.
    Kernel log daemon terminating.

    done


    Previously, this same message followed the udev error message, so I'm thinking that maybe the udev problem is a red-herring, rather than the cause of the problem.

    I hope that this will now provide someone with enough information to be able to help.

    Thanks in advance

    Use bootchart for a few boots should help narrow it down.
    Man first, have a try at Info, have a look at Wiki, if all that fails Scroogle!!!!!
    If I've helped click on the Rep button I don't know what it does but it sounds cool.

    Sorry for the absence, FM.

    OK - I've installed Bootchart, and have several impressive graphs.

    Sorry to be so dense, but exactly what am I looking for in these? Nothing obvious leaps out at me!

    Thanks for your patience with this "challenged" student!
