Hi.

I hope there are still some people using debain armel on their zaurus.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The new udev package for armel will brake your system so DON'T install it but set it to hold with aptitude.
We need a newer kernel for future support of debian udev packages. The package was installed for me without any warnings!
The new /etc/initd/udev does not check correctly for the required kernel version with signalfd support !
I found this http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=550200

If you updated the new udev package with old yonggun 2.6.24.4 you will need to fix it with installing the older udev from debian stable.
This is tricky since without working udev you will have to create the dev block links yourself with mkdev. See cat /proc/partitions after
you inserted a sd card with the old udev package. You can mount the partiton with mount after you created the dev link with mkdev.

zubunutu kernel does not work nicely under debian and I want to compile a newer kernel.
Someone got all the patches needed ?

Offline charging is still not fixed in the latest kernels. So we have to stay on 2.6.24 for now...

This thread doesn't really go into much detail about how to fix the problem once it has occurred.
On my system, after a brief panic with some swearing thrown in for good measure, I immediately looked under /var/cache/apt/archives.
I saw 3 udev packages:

udev_146-6_armel.deb
udev_147-4_armel.deb
udev_147-5_armel.deb

I used "dpkg -i" to install the oldest of these and things seem to be working fine.
I immediately then took a copy of the .deb and placed it somewhere safe in /root so that if this happens again (which it will) I can quickly downgrade udev.
