[SOLVED] Udev Question

Hey guys, I have a question.
My understanding is that Devuan uses eudev. I've been poking around trying to figure out how to restart "udev" or how to manually start it.
Can someone knowledgeable on the matter pitch in?

So if not udev or eudev, what is used in Devuan for device nodes management?

If you could explain how it's being run by default and how one can trigger it to rerun when needed, that would be awesome. I am aware this is very much automated in normal conditions.

Thank you

Manny

Re: [SOLVED] Udev Question

Easy:
Is it running?
-->
someuser@mybox:~$ /etc/init.d/eudev status
or
-->
someuser@mybox:~$ ps -aef | grep udev

restart it:
-->
someuser@mybox:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/eudev restart

Check status (openrc):
-->
someuser@mybox:~$ rc-status -a | grep eudev

eudev is a replacement for udev.
Udev depends on and is integrated with systemd; we all don't want that..... agree?

Re: [SOLVED] Udev Question

I appreciate it sir.

That is what I was looking for. I realized Devuan was using eudev instread, but it was not clear to me how things worked.

I guess one could also use "service eudev restart" to restart the service it seems. It worked for me.

Once again thank you for your input.
