udev 175-0ubuntu3 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

udev (175-0ubuntu3) precise; urgency=low

  [ Andy Whitcroft ]
  * debian/udev.initramfs-bottom: ignore timeout errors from udevadm we
    expect (and indeed requested) in certain failure modes.  If we do not we
    will bail out early and not transfer /dev into /root which is always
    fatal leading to unbootable machines.  (LP: #818177)
  * avoid-exit-deadlock-for-timely-events: avoid deadlock when exiting
    by continuing to handle events with timeliness requirements.
    The timeliness requirement will be violated if we ignore them which
    is highly undesirable.  Also these events are typically dependant
    events and may well block the events we are waiting on leading to
    boot delays and uninitialised devices.  (LP: #842560)
  * debian/udev.initramfs-bottom: increase the client-side timeout to
    better cope with potential timeout extension issues in udev.  We very
    much would prefer udev to time itself out and guarantee to have
    completed than take action ourselves.  Very worst case the timeout may
    be doubled from the default of 60s so increase ours accordingly.  Note,
    we should only ever trip this timeout when we are already in severe
    trouble.  (LP: #818177)

Binary packages built by this source

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.
