[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: eudev
Version: 3.2.2-13
Severity: grave

Dear Maintainer,

When installing eudev I get:

Since release 198, udev requires support for the following features in
the running kernel:

- inotify(2)            (CONFIG_INOTIFY_USER)
- signalfd(2)           (CONFIG_SIGNALFD)
- accept4(2)
- open_by_handle_at(2)  (CONFIG_FHANDLE)
- timerfd_create(2)     (CONFIG_TIMERFD)
- epoll_create(2)       (CONFIG_EPOLL)

Grepping through /proc/kallsyms gives me:
0000000000000000 t do_inotify_init
0000000000000000 T __x64_sys_inotify_init1
0000000000000000 T __ia32_sys_inotify_init1
0000000000000000 T __ia32_sys_inotify_init
0000000000000000 T __x64_sys_inotify_init

Do I miss something or did some interfaces change?

Hello,

Seems like you are hitting some problems not seen before.

Can you please give us the following information:

 - Which release do you use?
   (from the package eudev-3.2.2-13 you seem to use ascii)
 - Which kernels do you have installed?
 - You can easily check which kernel features you have by e.g.:
   cat /boot/config-4.19.0-6-amd64 | grep CONFIG_INOTIFY_USER;

 - alternately, and that is what the eudev.postinst script does:
   cat /proc/kallsyms| grep "inotify_init" etc.

Please check if the problems remains with eudev-3.2.9-4.

Thanks!

Hi!

For some reason this did not reach me. It did not even reach my spam box.

begin  quotation  from Svante Signell (in <5edf5705148141448f28aacd058f5e51579ec6af.camel@gmail.com>):

Primarily ascii.

>  - Which kernels do you have installed?

And this is probably the reason why this has not been seen before - I
compile my own kernel (for educational reasons primarily) from the ceres
sources.

(515) aw@anhrefn $ cat /proc/version 
Linux version 5.5.13 (aw@anhrefn) (gcc version 8.3.0 (Debian 8.3.0-6)) #2.0
SMP PREEMPT Tue Mar 31 12:20:33 CEST 2020

The upgrade went smoothly. I presume the problem is only of interest for
people using a new kernel on an ascii system. I downgrade to normal - feel
free to downgrade even more. ;)
