I've released the 004 version of udev. It can be found at:
Thanks to Robert Love, there are now rpms available at:
with the source rpm at:
udev is a implementation of devfs in userspace using sysfs and
/sbin/hotplug. It requires a 2.6 kernel to run properly.
The major changes since the 003 release are:
- MAJOR speedups over the previous version. No more "sleep(1)"
always, we now wait for the "dev" file to show up, and not
- partitions now work again.
- removal of devices that were named differently from the kernel
name work properly.
- proper spec file.
- a man page with real content.
- sync up with current version of libsysfs.
Many thanks to Dan Stekloff, Kay Sievers, and Robert Love for their help
with patches for this release. I really appreciate it.
The full ChangeLog can be found below.
The udev FAQ can be found at:
Development of udev is done in a BitKeeper tree available at:
If anyone ever wants a snapshot of the current tree, due to not using
BitKeeper, or other reasons, is always available at any time by asking.
