Yes, I have installe udev.

rpm -Va --nofiles gave nothing, just a blank commandline.

The only way I can get a command line is by using a rescue cd.  What
happens before the system halts is:

- --quote

Loading jbd.ko module
Loading ext3.ko module
Creating block device
Creating root device
Mounting root filesystem
kjournald startin. Commmit interval 5 seconds
EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.
Switching to new root

- --unquote

then is stops.  I can restart using alt-ctrl-del so the computer
responds but not to any commands.
