I have an RealPrivateServer on OVH provider, I have completes the upgrade, but after all packages were upgraded, the system for some reason don't generate the disk devices in /dev properly. I had the system mounted in /dev/sda1 but the swap was not mounted. In fact there were no /dev/sda or /dev/uba at all. I'm fix this problem creating the missing devices and mount swa. So I create the devices my partitons:
cat /proc/partitions major minor #blocks name 180 0 503808 uba 180 1 497983 uba1 8 0 20971520 sda 8 1 20479969 sda1
Create the devices accordingly to your values above, then you can enable the swap disk:
mknod /dev/uba b 180 0 mknod /dev/uba1 b 180 1 swapon -a mknod /dev/sda b 8 0 mknod /dev/sda1 b 8 1
But the problem is on system reboot, the devices disappear! I don't know why, but i suspect about udev fault.
how can I verify that udev recreates right devices on boot time?
