udev 167 with all rules

September 18, 2011 — BarryK
Mavrothal put in a request for this. The 'common' repo has a udev 167 PET that has cut-down and customised rules especially for Puppy.

I have created PET packages of the original udev 167 with all of the rules. These are for experimentation purposes.

PETs (169KB, 3KB, 32KB):


Thanks, but
Username: mavrothal
Thanks a lot. I do appreciate it. But I'm afraid I did not make my self clear enough. I was hopping for the *full* udev package. eg with all the rules, keymaps, devices and extras. Tried to compile myself in Racy to save you the trouble but failed. Needed gtkdoc which I compiled from T2 and installed but still failed looking for gtkdoc 1.10 >= :-? Any suggestions on the configuration command? Full udev is really needed for proper power management in the OLPC laptops running puppy. Thanks again

Full udev
Username: BarryK
"That is the full udev. That's what I got when compiled from source. This is how I configured (same as done in T2): ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --sbindir=/sbin --libdir=/usr/lib --with-rootlibdir=/lib --libexecdir=/lib/udev --build=i486-t2-linux-gnu --disable-extras --disable-introspection

Full udev w/extras
Username: mavrothal
"Thanks a lot for the config. Actually the extras that is disabled, is what is needed. Compile as you suggested, works fine but --enable-extras (on nothing) fails because it requires libacl. acl-2.2.47 though from T2 does not compile because can not find attr/xattr.h xattr.h is present in /usr/include/sys/ but sumehow can not be found (I guess similar to ???) Tried to check where the path for it is defined but no luck. The only references to attr/xattr.h are in configure and aclocal.m4 but no paths :-? Any other suggestions? Thanks again.

udev with extras
Username: mavrothal
"For the history, I managed to compile udev 167 with extras in Saluki-006 using then ubuntu natty sources. So I guess will also work in Racy I needed to compile first gtk-doc, acl and attr and `make install-dev' the attr compile. Also needed some patching in linux/input.h Would be nice if in future kernel compiles you set DEVTMPFS=y and DEVTMPFS_MOUNT=y so devices could be generated dynamically at boot time if needed.
