Hey, it’s been a while,
This simple post is gonna be about “How to move from udev to eudev?” For those of you who don’t know what udev is, basically speaking, it is a device manager that handle events from userspace apps that try to access devices on /dev. And, eudev is an improvement of udev.
I was using the deprecated version and I was kinda insecure in performing the upgrade on my Gentoo system :). Fortunately, I’ve found a “correct” way to do that. At least, I didn’t have problems. The steps are simple and direct. I’ll share here.
# emerge -Ca udev # emerge -1a eudev # etc-update # emerge @preserved-rebuild
After removing udev to install eudev, just make sure that your computer/notebook will not turn off for some reason, because if it happens, you’re gonna have a big trouble :).

That’s all for today,
