Hi there,

Which is a minimal required Linux kernel version and udev/eudev version required to run

As udev version is somehow dependent on kernel I suppose any udev running on supported kernel
should be suitable, isn't it?

Commit [2] from seems to require kernel >= 3.15-rc5, on the other hand there are some
attempts to support older kernels [3].

AFAIK, there is no known minimal kernel-version (or minimal required

And how about gcc build dependency?

I don't know, we make use of some GCC features (destructor and cleanup
attributes). But those should be around for a long time...

Try it and send a bug-report :)

Thanks a lot for any info.

Kind regards,
