Number 3 here is a likely cause, since if you ran "udevstart" while
chrooted into your new system, but _without_ mounting a tmpfs on /dev,
then udev put all the device nodes and its database on the _real_ /dev
directory in your new root filesystem.
You need to make sure that directory has _nothing_ in it except
/dev/console and /dev/null, and no dot-files.
