I'm mentioned this several times now: Get me a spec for what Linux
udev provides, and what services are needed, and I'll make a
compatible implementation on FreeBSD.|
While it is unfortunate that Linux didn't pickup my interface that mostly pre-dated its implementation, I expect the two are close enough that it would be easy to do. I've been hampered by not being able to find anything that approaches a specification for udev in the Google searches I've done. Mostly I've found rants about how great udev is, and how horrible all the competition is. While I'm sure that serves some purpose, it doesn't satisfy my need for a clear, and easy to follow specification. I'm hesitant to just write something that matches the Linux code because I don't have any way of knowing what is supposed to be a documented interface, and what's supposed to be a private change on a whim interface.
I'm sure it is just a matter of being unfamiliar with the proper terms to search for. Any hints in this area would be greatly appreciated. If something that is "standard," I'd expect to find good docs somewhere, right?
