there was a tool shipped in the udev package called 'udevmonitor' that was really nice to help figure out why nodes in /dev would not show up. In newer udev releases this program however is gone (udev >= 120), but it was present in opensuse 10.3 (udev <= 114). What is the replacement for udevmonitor named now?

All udev tools are in one single binary called "udevadm", which is always in /sbin, and not like the old tools spread around in /sbin, /usr/bin, /usr/sbin. See "man udev" for the reference to udevadm, and "man udevadm" for the commands, which have been the individual tools before.
