Re: udev in initrd

For some reason the udev package we have in rawhide now:

Seems to fall into the category of "complex rule set full of shell
scripts" ... in some testing I was doing a while ago, an initial
run of udev to populate /dev was executing ~3000 processes.

If you have time to take a look at that configuration of udev, I'd be
interested to know whether you think it's:

 - Just poor configuration of udev to achieve something that could
   be done much more simply and efficiently.

 - A policy that "pretty much requires" shell scripts. (Not that I can
   imagine what fixed policy is easier to implement as a rats nest
   of shell scripts...)

Thanks,

just install the udev rpm and not the udev-persistent rpm and you have a simple setup
