udev and kernel (testing)

Hello all -

I am running a testing box. Recently (end of last week, maybe?) I did an update, & one of the packages that -wanted- to update was udev; however, later in the installation process I was dumped to a debconf screen that indicated the new udev would be incompatible with the kernel I was running, & that I needed to upgrade the kernel (to 2.6.18 or newer) first or risk rendering the system unusable.

I left the answer to the "upgrade anyway?" question on that screen at "no", and the update pretty much bailed at that point.

So for a few days now I have put a "hold" on udev via aptitude, since I don't see a newer kernel available ... I guess I'm wondering whether I would be wise to try rolling my own. I did it once, but it was a long time ago. Mainly I'm curious why a newer one hasn't shown up (perhaps it's me doing something stupid - I'm always open to that option!). Maybe on the other hand I should just leave the hold on udev?
