Mandriva Linux 2008 will adopt the Fedora initialization system for udev, allowing us to work together in this area and reducing the shared burden of maintenance.


I don't know what all that involves, but it sounds like very good news. When they first implemented udev, I had a devil of a time tracking down why I lost all ethernet connectivity. It turned out udev had arbitrarily swapped eth0 and eth1.
