udev 173-0ubuntu4 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

udev (173-0ubuntu4) oneiric; urgency=low

  * Set a timeout of 61 seconds when calling udevadm control --exit, to
    ensure that udevd always reaches its *own* timeout first.  If udevadm
    times out before udevd, it exits non-zero, breaking the move of the /dev
    mount; and if we ignore the udevadm failure then udevd might still be
    running, which is the original issue that the patch for bug #624469
    was trying to address.  Raising the timeout doesn't make the boot any
    slower, it just makes sure we let udevd count the 60 seconds instead of
    udevadm.  LP: #818177.
  * debian/patches/race-condition-on-exit: Process events before signals
    in the worker thread, so we don't sit around waiting 60 seconds for an
    already-dead process.

gir1.2-gudev-1.0: libgudev-1.0 introspection data

 This package contains the GObject-introspection data of libgudev-1.0 in
 binary typelib format.

libgudev-1.0-0: GObject-based wrapper library for libudev

 This library makes it much simpler to use libudev from programs already using
 GObject. It also makes it possible to easily use libudev from other
 programming languages, such as Javascript, because of GObject introspection
 support.
 .
 This package contains the shared libraries.

libgudev-1.0-dev: GObject-based wrapper library for libudev -- development files

 This library makes it much simpler to use libudev from programs already using
 GObject. It also makes it possible to easily use libudev from other
 programming languages, such as Javascript, because of GObject introspection
 support.
 .
 This package contains the header and pkgconfig files needed for developing
 applications that use libgudev1.0.

libudev-dev: udev library (development files)

 libudev provides a set of functions for accessing the udev database
 and querying sysfs.
 .
 This package provides a static library and C header files.

libudev0: udev library

 libudev provides a set of functions for accessing the udev database
 and querying sysfs.

libudev0-udeb: udev library
udev: rule-based device node and kernel event manager

 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.
 .
 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.
