I see this was from a couple weeks ago, but I've been out of town and
am still getting through old mail.

Three major things to get to current udev.

1. Kernel upgrade >= 2.6.16.10 (check the NEWS/README in udev to be sure)

2. Udev rules update. Grab the udev-config tarball from LFS-6.2.

3. Udev bootscripts update. Grab the lfs-bootscripts tarball from
LFS-6.2. Remove the old udev bootscript. If there's a hotplug
bootscript, remove that, too. I can't remember. Install the new udev
and udev_retry bootscripts. They should be S10 and S45, respectively,
in rcsysinit.d. Look at the targets in the bootscripts Makefile.

That's it. Remove the old hotplug cruft if it bothers you, but
nothing's gonna try to use it.
