    58          If you are using the development version of BLFS, the Eudev version
    59          on this page may be higher than the one you used for building LFS.
    60          Newer versions of Eudev may occasionally be incompatible with former
    61          ones, either because they require some new options to be enabled
    62          in the kernel or because they change the way rules are parsed. You
    63          may want to consult
    64          <ulink url="http:wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Udev/upgrade">the Gentoo
    65          page</ulink> about upgrading Udev. Another alternative is
    66          to run the instructions below with the Eudev version on your
    67          current system.
     56         If you are using a version of BLFS different from your currently
     57         installed base LFS system, you should use the Eudev source from your
     58         LFS build.  Newer versions of Eudev may occasionally be incompatible
     59         with former ones, either because they require some new options to be
     60         enabled in the kernel or because they change the way rules are parsed.
     61         For in-system updates to Eudev, you may want to consult <ulink
