There is a world outside of udev. Hosting places tend to be really slow at the uptake of new kernels, so usually you can expect 2.6.26 regardless of whether you run stable, testing or unstable in your vserver. Breaking compatibility just for the sake of breaking, or at most premature cleanup, is unnecessary damage. Udev is installed only in actual host machines, not in chroots/vservers/ lxc/openvz so not supporting kernels older than stable is acceptable (but please, never again break compat with stable like squeeze did). This is not the case for packages which don't touch the hardware directly. -- 1KB // Microsoft corollary to Hanlon's razor: // Never attribute to stupidity what can be // adequately explained by malice.
