Yesterday i upgraded my system and and this morning i got error: "X is respawning too fast". I got this error message because catalyst isn't supporting xorg-server 1.12 and xorg-server 1.11 needs udev. I found not so proper solution for this problem but it works:
ln -s /usr/lib/libudev.so.1.0.1 /usr/lib/libudev.so.0
No, that is not the way to do it:
Symlinking is not the answer. If software is broken it either needs to be updated upstream or possibly just recompiled.
Another one is what anonymous_user is suggesting in that symlinks can cause all sorts of very hard to track problems later on. I highly recommend that you lose the symlinks and solve the problems directly.
The biggest problem is that in a later update these symlinks, meanwhile forgotten will create problems.

Yeah i have read that and as i said not proper way. So the options are: use the symlink and you can use the system OR wait updates with broken system(only tty available). I tried your thread first but i could not startx. I'm going to use the symlink until the problems are solved. When there is proper updates available i can remove the symlink.

I think if you're disciplined you'll be OK. When I had a similar problem back in the day, I did the same thing but I did add an alias to 'emerge' (the gentoo version of pacman)... essentially it was something like:
alias emerge='echo "if you see <pkg>, rm symlink"; emerge'
It may have been unneeded, but I thought it made sense to remove the symlink before the package was upgraded
Welly, welly, welly, welly, welly, welly, well. To what do I owe the extreme pleasure of this surprising visit?
