34 use <xref linkend='udev-extras'/> instead of this page.</para></note>
35
36 <para><application>Udev</application> was indeed installed in LFS and there
37 is no reason to reinstall it unless you are going to install a package such
38 as <application>UPower</application>. This installation of
39 <application>Udev</application> enables extra features which includes
40 <application>gudev</application>, a requirement for
41 <application>UPower</application> and optionally used by other
42 packages.</para>
43
44 <para>Unlike any other package in the BLFS book, there is no set version
45 of <application>Udev</application> specified to download. Several version
46 updates to LFS and none to BLFS means there are probably many different
47 versions of <application>Udev</application> on the platforms that BLFS is
48 being built upon. Therefore, you should download and use the version of
49 <application>Udev</application> your computer currently uses. The BLFS
50 team has no experience updating (or reverting to an older version) the
51 <application>Udev</application> package <quote>on the fly.</quote> To
52 discover the version of <application>Udev</application> your computer
53 currently uses, issue <command>/sbin/udevadm --version</command>.</para>
54
55 <para>You should look at the LFS instructions for the version you used, to
56 check that you are using the correct testfiles (for some versions, this was a
57 separate tarball, extracted in the udev directory with --strip-components=1)
58 and to compare the configure options you are about to use against those which
59 you used to build the version you are running (sometimes, the options change).
