udev version help???


Hi

Installation of cups

I,m installing colord error
Code:
configure: error: Package requirements (gudev-1.0) were not met:

No package 'gudev-1.0' found
udev-extras (from systemd) (for GUdev) is only recommended so not installed.

Ok so i,ll install which gets me

here I have udev 173 installed
There are 2 links to download udev extras this link dosn't give for udev 173.
Neither dose
This

Any ideas how to get round this?
Do I have to install Udev extras is there away around it?
maybe --disable-gudev ??

Is version 173 actually required or can (should?) 188-3 or 193 be used? Both are present in http://anduin.linuxfromscratch.org/sources/other/

Never mind, it should be the one you used when installing LFS.... Sorry I wasted your time!

Hi

I managed to find udev173 buried on a harddrive on the server. So now I can proceed,
Just a note, maybe ther should be a note to save the udev you build LFS with as it took quite awhile to find the 1 I used

Hi

I have a problem that has arisen from I think from This
When I run startxfce4 the desktop starts, and when I start terminator or xterm I get UNABLE TO START /BIN?BASH. I have put the problem down to devpts not mounting at /dev/pts.
Before i started installing this it worked ok???
To temporary fix before I start xfce I run
Code:
sudo mkdir -v /dev/pts
then
Code:
sudo mount -vt devpts devpts /dev/pts
on reboot it's back to not working.
How do I fix this???


fstab
Code:
/dev/sdc1      /            ext4   defaults        1     1
/dev/sdc2       swap        swap   pri=1           0     0
/dev/sdc5      /home/spiky/Spiky        ext4   defaults        0     2
proc           /proc        proc   defaults        0     0
sysfs          /sys         sysfs  defaults        0     0
devpts         /dev/pts     devpts gid=4,mode=620  0     0
tmpfs          /run         tmpfs  defaults        0     0
# End /etc/fstab

What does
Code:
ls /lib/udev/devices/
give?
I had similar problems, if you look at /etc/rc.d/init.d/udev you will see that you need to set up certain static entry's for udev to populate.

well the pts folder should be being populated what about the kernel config you should have this CONFIG_DEVPTS_MULTIPLE_INSTANCES=y in your config.

I have not touched the kernel it was all working ok until the udev install from blfs, The new Blfs instructions are a bit confusing. Or should I just install udev latest?

Isn't there a bit about using the same udev that you used to build LFS?

Hi

Ok FYI I reinstalled udev-173 which corrected /dev/pts dir problem. I then ran the udev from blfs/svn which broke udev again?? but it dose leave the gudev file which was required.
A reinstall of udev-173 which fixes /devpts dir. This then satisfise colord package.
