Description poletti.marco 2012-10-31 10:58:58 UTC
Disclaimer: this bug has been filed in a semi-automated manner. When emerging the package sys-fs/udev-171-r8, the following elog messages are displayed: * udev-171 does not support Linux kernel before version 2.6.32! * * Updating persistent-net rules file * * You need to add udev-mount to the sysinit runlevel. * If you do not do this, * your system will not be able to boot! * Run this command: * rc-update add udev-mount sysinit * * persistent-net does assigning fixed names to network devices. * If you have problems with the persistent-net rules, * just delete the rules file * rm /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules * and then reboot. * * This may however number your devices in a different way than they are now. * * If you build an initramfs including udev, then please * make sure that the /sbin/udevadm binary gets included, * and your scripts changed to use it,as it replaces the * old helper apps udevinfo, udevtrigger, ... * * mount options for directory /dev are no longer * set in /etc/udev/udev.conf, but in /etc/fstab * as for other directories. * * If you use /dev/md/*, /dev/loop/* or /dev/rd/*, * then please migrate over to using the device names * /dev/md*, /dev/loop* and /dev/ram*. * The devfs-compat rules have been removed. * For reference see Bug #269359. * * Rules for /dev/hd* devices have been removed * Please migrate to libata. * * For more information on udev on Gentoo, writing udev rules, and * fixing known issues visit: * http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/udev-guide.xml Such messages should only be displayed when the package is a new install. These situations can be checked in the ebuild as follows: if ! has_version 'sys-fs/udev'; then See the tracker bug 440214 for more details.

" * udev-171 does not support Linux kernel before version 2.6.32!" ^ actually makes sense for every install... helps a lot with choosing what version to run... every udev ebuild should state this if possible :)

If this is the desired behavior, then feel free to close this bug.
Comment 3 Samuli Suominen 2012-11-01 02:29:20 UTC
i'll see if this can be improved a bit -->
Comment 4 Samuli Suominen 2012-11-01 06:28:52 UTC
done, but only for ~arch and live ebuild. since this is so minor fix, we can wait until 195 or newer stabilizes. here you can see the changes: + 01 Nov 2012; Samuli Suominen <email@example.com> udev-195.ebuild, + udev-9999.ebuild: + Use REPLACING_VERSIONS to print out upgrade related messaging only when + required wrt #440462 by "poletti.marco" + http://sources.gentoo.org/viewvc.cgi/gentoo-x86/sys-fs/udev/udev-195.ebuild?r1=1.1&r2=1.2 http://sources.gentoo.org/viewvc.cgi/gentoo-x86/sys-fs/udev/udev-9999.ebuild?r1=1.115&r2=1.116
