Hi Lee. Fair comment. I did a fresh install of FC5 on some harddrive freespace
last night. On the first install of FC5, when I eventually got X to start,
the bootup showed selinux started, then udev tried to start, but failed, also
saying it would continue to try in the background. I disabled selinux, as I
don't feel that I need it, and at the next reboot udev started with no
problems. On that install I now have planetccrma stuff, music apps, etc.

I thought it best to try a fresh install to see if /dev/dsp was there with
these udev problems on bootup. Some time later (4 am) , with the same udev
failure showing on the fresh install, I got logged into KDE. Opened up /dev ,
and there is dsp giving me the finger, so it does not appear to be a problem
caused by selinux, and udev showing a fail on bootup.

I have never done an upgrade over an existing install, but have read that
there can be problems.
