Parent article: New kernels and old distributions
Whether or not udev and HAL are maintained as part of the kernel source
tree (as recently proposed), the solution to this problem is simple: if
you want to run a new kernel, update userspace packages that depend on
kernel internals correspondingly.
If you would have read the linked full email from Andrew
, you would have seen:
This stuff breaks my FC3 test box and there is, afaict, no clear
way for users to upgrade udev to unbreak it.
Thus, your solution doesn't seem to work.
Btw, if the patch really breaks all 10-month-old distributions, it will break currently supported SUSE distributions, too. Yet another class of users who might have problems in using (and thus testing!) current kernels.
