The udevd daemon requires Unix Domain Sockets in order to operate. If the unix module is not loaded, an error will occur during startup of the udevd daemon, and important devices, including the harddrive devices will be missing from the /dev directory:

udevd: init_udevd_socket: error getting socket: Address family not supported by protocol

Resolution

It is necessary to modify the startup scripts to load the necessary support module unix, before the udevd daemon is started.
