Subject: [gentoo-user] udev-197: what to do
Date: Sat, 26 Jan 2013 18:34:36
1 I have read the news item and still have questions. The news item
2 covers several points.
4 1. remove udev-postmount:
5 I did this but worry that I now cannot reboot until I upgrade
6 udev. Is that correct?
8 2. Add CONFIG_DEVTMPFS=y. Easy. Kernel rebuilt and installed
9 in /boot (but have not rebooted).
11 3. Predictable network interface names.
12 I have the problematic udev rule.
13 Specifically 70-persistent-net.rules has (on one line)
15 SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*",
16 ATTR{address}=="00:1e:c9:48:f9:a0", ATTR{type}=="1",
17 KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="eth0"
19 I read the bug report, but it is not as clear as I would like.
20 Is it true that I can change my file to simply
22 SUBSYSTEM=="net", ACTION=="add", DRIVERS=="?*",
23 ATTR{address}=="00:1e:c9:48:f9:a0", ATTR{type}=="1",
24 KERNEL=="eth*", NAME="net0"
26 That is just change the NAME from eth0 to net0 ?
28 4. No support for kernels older than 2.6.39. No problem.
30 5. Separate /usr not affected. Good.
32 The news item does not mention the problem of moving files
33 from /usr/lib/udev/rules.d to /lib/udev/rules.d. Am I correct in
34 believing that we still need one of the equivalents of
35 equery belongs -n /usr/lib/udev | xargs emerge -pv
37 I used that successfully when one of my testing systems went to
38 udev-197. I would think it is needed (before reboot) on my stable
39 systems as well so I am surprised it is not in the news item.
41 thanks,
