Subject: bug#334: eudev service might be using an incomplete PATH
From: Guenther Brunthaler <>

Package: eudev
Version: 3.2.2-13

Bug #333 is caused by an udev rule invoking the wrong executable,
because it obviously wanted to execute a script in /lib/udev but did not
specify the full path, and thus invoked a binary of the same name in
/usr/sbin which was not intended.

Assuming the udev-rule from the usb-modeswitch-data is correct and
standard, it follows that the eudev service is currently using an
inadequate PATH.

The following modification made the problem with bug #333 go away:

$ diff -u /etc/udev/udev.conf.upstream /etc/udev/udev.conf
=2D-- /etc/udev/udev.conf.upstream        2019-06-13 23:14:29.000000000 +0=

  # initramfs should be rebuilt.


I therefore suggest changing the line

$ grep PATH /etc/init.d/eudev
