I saw the item on GWN about udev and 2.6 kernels. In the thread
there was a link to a revised Gentoo guide regarding udev. I didn't
see anything in there that was platform specific. The guide
mentioned emerging hotplug and coldplug if one wanted to
run a pure udev system.

Coldplug is currently ~sparc, and hotplug no longer does the job
of scanning hardware at boot up.

What is the advice of other 2.6 kernel users on sparc. Should we
hang tight with our static /dev for now, or go ahead and
emerge udev and coldboot currently marked ~sparc ?

Im running 2.6 and hotplug, the only snag I've had was that the latest version of hotplug required me to load the USB drivers using /etc/modules.autoload/kernel-2.6 whereas older versions pulled them in automatically.

Seems fine other than that.

Yes, I'm running the current hotplug too. That is the same across
the board with x86. But that package is in stable.

Are you running with udev package installed,
and with /dev file system support in the kernel unset (CONFIG_DEVFS_FS)?

This is the scenario I'm mostly concerned with. Will udev
require coldplug to work and is coldplug on ~sparc working
for Ultra series systems?
