answer from linode staff, posting here so google can have at it:

Hi Justin,

You are receiving this error message as the new udevd in Ubuntu Lucid no longer supports mounting its own /dev mount point. You will need to add the following line to your "/etc/fstab" file:

----- SNIP -----
dev /dev tmpfs rw 0 0
----- SNIP -----

You can edit your "/etc/fstab" file by mounting your disk image in the Finnix Recovery distribution. More information on the Finnix Recovery distribution can be found here:

- http://library.linode.com/troubleshooti ... x-recovery

I hope this helps. Please let us know if we can assist you further.

Best Regards,
Danny Ariti

that was spot on, added the line to /etc/fstab and its all good now.

We've also put an article up on the Linode Library to help anyone that wants to upgrade their existing Linode to Lucid:

Thank you very much for feeding google.

I just did the upgrade from Hardy to Lucid and got the same thing, and the first thing I did was google search for linode plymouth-splash, and this was the first hit.

And thanks, Linode, for the great support.

I believe selecting "Automount devtmpfs" in the boot profile in the linode manager handles this for you, without having to use finnix.
