Hi,

I have a custom udev rule to map usb devices when they connect.
Unfortunately something went wrong today and the system can't connect the usb devices correctly.
I noticed the following 3 udevd processes:

Code:

 9342 ?        00:00:00 udevd
 9343 ?        00:00:00 udevd
 9798 ?        00:00:00 udevd


I'm supposing I should find only 1 process, right?
Is it safe for me to kill all udevd processes and start udevd again via /etc/init.d/udevd restart?
I'm not in the situation of rebooting the server.

Thanks,

Vieri

Last time I checked, a couple of months ago, I had 3. Now I only have 1 - dunno what changed :?

Anyway, I believe that 3 is normal.

Yes.
