Hi kernel team, Last week I stumbled upon the current text in the release-notes about kernel/udev upgrade. If we don't update it, it says (among other things) the text below . I believe this text is obsolete and was ONLY meant for the lenny to squeeze update. Do you agree that this part should be removed? Or do you think it should be rewritten (in the latter case, can you do a proposal)? If some of the current text stays, I say at least the names wheezy and squeeze are wrong. Kind regards, Paul  http://www.debian.org/releases/wheezy/amd64/release-notes/ch-upgrading.en.html#upgrading-udev 4.4.5. Upgrading the kernel and udev The udev version in wheezy requires a kernel of version 2.6.26 or newer with the CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED option disabled and the CONFIG_INOTIFY_USER and CONFIG_SIGNALFD options enabled. Because the standard Debian kernels in squeeze (version 2.6.26) have CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED enabled, and the udev version in squeeze will not provide all the functionality expected by the latest kernels, special care must be taken when upgrading to avoid putting your system in an unbootable state. Booting the 2.6.26 kernel from squeeze with the udev from wheezy may result in a failure to correctly assign names to network devices, and will also fail to apply certain additional permissions to block devices (such as access by the disk group). The software itself will appear to be working, but some rules (for example, network-based rules) will not be loaded properly. It is therefore strongly recommended that you upgrade the kernel on its own at this point, to ensure a compatible kernel is available before upgrading udev.
