Sure, will do in just a bit.
Not all distros use /lib for it. In fact, RHEL5/RHEL6/Fedora 15 and Fedora rawhide all use /etc/udev/rules.d.If so, it's only older distros that I wouldn't expect to be packaging newer versions of v4l-utils (e.g. RHEL won't as I understand it), and for Fedora, if "rawhide" is devel tree, then I'm pretty sure you're mistaken.We've packaged v4l-utils for RHEL, via epel. I volunteered to maintain it for RHEL6, as I use it on my machine and I would be doing it anyway for me, so better to maintain it for the others also ;)  https://admin.fedoraproject.org/pkgdb/acls/name/v4l-utils I don't intend to maintain it for RHEL5, but I was told that lots of mythtv users run CentOS (based on RHEL5). So, I won't doubt if someone from CentOS (or other rpm repos for .el5, like atrpms) would add v4l-utils there.
Okay, fair enough.
Do you know, by any chance, what's the minimal udev version where /lib/udev exists? If it is too old, then I agree that pointing the default to /lib/udev is the better.
Here's a casual look into udev's git log: commit 05b9640022d25a75923cc7809409914491a5f9da Author: Kay Sievers <kay.sievers@xxxxxxxx> Date: Fri Jul 18 16:26:55 2008 +0200 release 125 ... commit 282988c4f8a85c28468e6442e86efe51dc71cc93 Author: Kay Sievers <kay.sievers@xxxxxxxx> Date: Fri Jul 18 15:56:03 2008 +0200 move default rules from /etc/udev/rules.d/ to /lib/udev/rules.d/ ...
