additional rules and add-ons for udev
udev is a collection of tools and a daemon to manage events received from
the kernel and deal with them in user-space. Primarily this involves
creating and removing device nodes in /dev when hardware is discovered or
removed from the system.
This package contains additional rules and add-ons for udev that are not
yet mature enough for the base udev package. Many of these are intended
for use with DeviceKit, replacing parts of HAL.
These currently include:
- probe-modem
- modem-modeswitch
- udev-acl
Events are received via kernel netlink messaged and processed according to
rules in /etc/udev/rules.d and /lib/udev/rules.d, altering the name of the
device node, creating additional symlinks or calling other tools and programs
including those to load kernel modules and initialise the device.
