    Udevstart Missing in Linux Kernel 2.6.27.20


    Hi ,

    I want to use udevstart. But, udevstart is missing for latest version of linux kernel.

    I am using CentOS5.3.

    Could you please let me know how to get udevstart or some utility to run udevstart?

    Thanks,
    Saurabh Chokshi

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    What exactly are you trying to accomplish? FWIW, I too am running CentOS 5.3.

    Actually, in my initrd script I am starting the udev interface by udevstart. I want to load some kernel modules that reads from the dev file.

    Before reading/writing from the dev file, I need udev interface to perform read/write operation.

    I'm not familiar with udev, but I do see in /sbin the following udev-related commands:
    Code:
    /sbin/start_udev    /sbin/udevd           /sbin/udevsettle
    /sbin/udevcontrol  /sbin/udevd.static  /sbin/udevtrigger
    Maybe you need start_udev?
