Thanks for the response. I updated the udev package to version 071-0.FC4.3. Right after the upgrade, I ran 'top' and saw that
udevd was consuming less between 0.3% - 0.7% of the CPU - much less than the 30% prior to the upgrade. But over the course of the day, it started taking up more percentage. Right now, I see that the range is between 8% - 12%. I have a sinking feeling that this is going to grow...
Also, on the other systems that I have, I see (from running top) that udev is constantly at 0.0%. Does this indicate any hardware related issues on the box that udev is trying to take up CPU resources? If so, what hardware would that be?
Thanks for your help.
