I udev problems after updating to udev 191 on an almost fresh install,
then downgraded to 189 in order to match a working system. This was
working before the latest upgrade cycle.
The problem is most (not all !) device nodes getting root/root
owner/group. So /dev/snd, /dev/video belongs to root and not the
official groups. So any kind of desktop interaction (webcams, audio
etc) fails unless its the root user.
It appears that udev isnt reading the rules files - whilst on another
much older system with 189 all is fine
The guides I have found so far seem way out of date, even bugzilla.
