Restarting udevd

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


In trying to answer the question "What is the proper way to restart
udevd on a running system?", the following questions came up:

1. I was informed something such as `killall udevd && udevd --daemon`
was not safe, is this true?
2. Is doing `udevadm control --exit && udevd --daemon` any better?
3. Now that the decision [1] has been made to move udevd out of the
system path, how is one supposed to even locate the binary to restart?
4. Should there be a `udevadm control --restart` command?
