Debian squeeze inotify udev problem solution

If You cannot boot after system upgrade from Debian Lenny to Squeeze, You are using custom kernel and You can see on of these message:

udevd[518]: inotify_init failed: Function not implemented
udevd[518]: error initializing inotify

Then probably You must check following options in your kernel config file :

File systems —>

  • [*] Dnotify support
  • [*] Inotify file change notification support
  • [*] Inotify support for userspace

or something similar.
