&gt; &gt; 3. New udev and separate /usr partition (30 minutes)<br>
&gt; &gt;<br>
&gt; &gt;    See [4]: &quot;Decide on whether a separate /usr is still a supported<br>
&gt; &gt;    configuration. If it is, newer udev can not be stabled and<br>
&gt; &gt;    alternatives should be investigated. If it isn&#39;t, a lot of<br>
&gt; &gt;    documentation will have to be updated. (And an alternative should<br>
&gt; &gt;    likely still be provided.)&quot;<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; Is it truely that much documentation? The handbook doesn&#39;t suggest separate<br>
&gt; /usr anymore (all example partitions use a single / file system), and the<br>
&gt; necessary changes to setup an initramfs are being prepared (cfr bugs related<br>
&gt; to bug #407959).<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; There will be some updates in the quickinstall for raid/lvm, but that&#39;s<br>
&gt; hardly a minor update to the document.<br>
&gt;<br>
&gt; We might want to provide an initramfs-guide to explain the concepts and the<br>
&gt; various methods for generating one (as well as debugging), but that too<br>
&gt; might not be the most difficult thing out there (there&#39;s still time for<br>
&gt; that, no)?<br>

<p>Alternatively, suggest using mdev in place of udev. So, there will be 3 options:</p>
<p>1) /usr on the same partition as / -- can use mdev or udev</p>
<p>2) /usr on a separate partition; this leads to :</p>
<p>2a) If one wants to use udev, one must use initramfs</p>
<p>2b) If one does not want to use an initramfs, one must use mdev </p>
<p>This will give the user a CHOICE, and that&#39;s the essence of Gentoo. </p>
