Subject: [gentoo-user] The time has come (udev and kernel dependencies)

1 Hi,
3 I have a Gentoo install on my Macbook Pro ,which kernel I don't
4 upgrade often, to say the least, because I use it for work and I don't
5 have much time to tinker with all of it as I had once...
7 So it has settled with the first kernel which made things working,
8 which was late 2007 2.6.24-rc6
10 However emerge -puv world these days tells me:
12 ('ebuild', '/', 'sys-fs/udev-141', 'merge') pulled in by
13 sys-fs/udev required by ('installed', '/',
14 'net-wireless/bluez-utils-3.36', 'nomerge')
15 sys-fs/udev required by ('ebuild', '/',
16 'sys-kernel/gentoo-sources-2.6.29-r5', 'merge')
17 sys-fs/udev required by ('ebuild', '/',
18 'sys-kernel/vanilla-sources-', 'merge')
19 (and 4 more)
21 Does this mean that I need to install a new kernel to run udev-141 ?
22 Ok, I should run a new kernel *anyway* ... at this point the question
23 is: when I update the kernel, I can use the old udev-124-r1 until I
24 install the new one?
26 I googled but the only clear reference I found was in Polish, that is
27 not exactly a language I am accustomed with...
29 Thanks!
