[Bug 1589997] Re: The device on /dev/sdx is not created when inserting new devices


Unfortunately I can reproduce the bug anymore, after installing 4.7rc2 the devices appeared in my system but strangely the order was changed, so sda was the removable disk and sdb the fixed drive, I did an dd to sdb (to create a bootable pendrive) and screwed my system. So I'm now in a freshly installed ubuntu (thankfully, only the first 2G where lost, so I could recover my /home/)
Feel free the close the bug as appropiate

  The device on /dev/sdx is not created when inserting new devices

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I am on kubuntu xenial (upgraded from 15.10), from a couple of weeks I noticed that the pendrives i insert to my computer are detected but the devices under /dev are no longer created.
  I if reboot the pc with the pendrive already plugged in it works without issues. I'm suspecting from udev because of this text in syslog (full output in the summary)
