The good news is, it appears to work fine here as well, even with my fancy hardware :p As a side note however, note that when I updated I also reverted to the default buffer size (which I noticed you upped), but then not only did my audio card not show up (amongst other things, this one is noticable because of a service waiting for it...) but some hard disks seemed not to have been processed either. A quick look in the log showed my old friend was back: mdevd: fatal: unable to receive netlink message: No buffer space available And to answer your question, about what could cause such a burst of events, this time I have an easy answer: mdevd-coldplug ! My first try when I noticed the error was simply to re-run mdevd-coldplug, and I got the buffer error again (and still no audio/etc) Easy fix, I upped the buffer back to 1MB and everything went fine this time. Rebooted since, with the buffer set to 1MB, and everything works fine right away. So yay (but my fancy hardware requires a "larger-than-normal" buffer for mdevd it seems). Anyhow, it all works fine now, with mdevd & mdevd-coldplug. Thanks!
