With the introduction of udev and the Linux 2.6 kernel, all devices in a
Linux system are able to be named in any way that the user desires, such
as in a persistent manner. It's is being used as a building block by
larger projects such as HAL and Gnome to present devices to users as
they are added and removed from the system on the fly.
This talk will cover how udev works, by showing the interaction with the
Linux kernel and userspace, and provide examples of how to configure
udev for common uses of it (such as digital cameras and USB mice.)
