What to do in Section 7.4?


http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/...er07/udev.html

Does this section require that I do anything, or does it just explain what will be happening in later steps?

TIA

udev is a program that loads devices by reading the the computer bus and loading modules. this section is telling you how deferent kernels load modules and the newest ones have udev built in to the kernel read it close and pic which one with what kernel you want to use.so what is your kernel. uname -r will tell you.

Thanks for your reply.

uname -r spits out 2.6.16.38. Not sure if that is for the host system, or for my LFS chrooted enviroment though. BTW, host is LFS LiveCD 6.2.5, on which uname -r spits out the same thing.

So since I have a (relatively) new kernel, does that mean it includes udev, and I don't need to do any commands or anything for said section?
