Description dB 2017-09-16 02:12:58 UTC
I'm not sure which udev update this "broke" but now my /dev/input/by-path or /dev/input/by-id is not being populated for a PS/2 keyboard. I looked at the udev rules file at /lib/udev/rules.d/60-persistent-input.rules and found that udev will populate the /dev/input link if I comment out the line regarding:

SUBSYSTEMS=="serio", ENV{ID_BUS}="i8042", GOTO="persistent_input_end"

however this does not feel like the proper fix or correction.

Please tell us which version of sys-fs/udev you happen to use.

The relevant change seems to be this:

I suggest you open an issue upstream:
Comment 3 dB 2017-09-20 04:14:01 UTC
The udev version is 217.
I will try to push upstream, thanks.
