I have rebuilt eudev package to use /etc/init.d/udev (rather than /etc/init.d/eudev) and also built some dummy udev packages that (hopefully) smoothly upgrades antiX-17 (fake eudev) to antiX-17.1 (true eudev).
At the moment both sets of debs are in the antiX stretch/dev repo (not enabled on antiX-17)
Before unleashing to the world, I need people to test that the upgrade is smooth.
I have tested on my box, frugal, live-usb, VBox various possible scenarios and it seems to be ok.
So, please only do this if you can restore if it doesn’t work out or don’t mind a possibly broken upgrade.
Here’s what to so.
1. Make sure antiX-17 is up to date (apt-get dist-upgrade)
2. Add the word dev to the end on the antix.list in /etc/apt/sources.list.d so it looks like this:
deb http://repo.antixlinux.com/stretch stretch main nosystemd dev
apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade
This *should* automatically replace and remove udev, libudev1 and libudev-dev (fake eudev) with eudev, libeudev1 and libeudev-dev (possibly this deb will not get installed, but that’s ok)
After this, look in /etc/init.d/ to make sure eudev file is removed as well as udev-finish (no longer required) and a udev file exists.
Make sure that udev file has this line # Provides: udev and not # Provides: eudev
Also check that the hidden .depend.boot in /etc/init.d has references to udev and not eudev.
Finally check there is a symlink file S02udev to /etc/init.d/udev in /etc/rcS.d
It should not make any difference if you had already installed an earlier version eudev (as explained in the forums) or you kept with the default.
If you have installed network-manager, a newer version should automatically be installed and set up.
Could you try this out on installed systems as well as frugal/live-usb with persistence.
If you are running testing or sid, then (obviously) you add dev to the sid section of the antix.list
NOTE: Do not do this if you are worried it may lead to a broken install.
That is the purpose of this post – to see if it works on a range of boxes, different situations.

Here’s mine on antix-17-full-32 bit sid repos. Works good so far and all
sym links were in place. I haven’t kept an eye on ram usage and many devices.
The mouse and memory sticks work on usb.
It says using eudev version 232:22.214.171.124 in synaptic now….is this the correct
one since you wrote “antiX stretch/dev repo (not enabled on antiX-17)” above.
I also updated to kernel 4.14.14

Thanks – eudev is version 232:126.96.36.199

Okay then synaptic is showing the correct one and updating with just
opening the repository settings and adding dev to the section
instead of having to edit the /etc/apt/sources.list.d file by hand.
Here’s a shot of my emachine on new eudev and 4.14.14 kernel running
rox-fluxbox on antix-17-32 bit stretch repos.
Also can I ask if you can remove my previous shots for the 64-bit,
the machine is now on 32-bit setup.

Hmmmmm. Back to the drawing board for me. Give me some time Anti. I gotta wipe 64 bit MX 17 off the emachine 3507 in the motorcycle shop. Install 32 bit AntiX 17. Install 4.9 kernel. Then do eudev next. Then test card readers on front of emachine desktop in the motorcycle shop.
Stock sd card reader on front of desktop face not working in MX . So losing nothing.

I don’t know anything about eudev, but if you say what scenarios that nobody has tested for you, yet, I can probably find a machine to run some tests on for you.February 15, 2018 at 12:41 am #6578Member
installed system antix17_64 stable
change sources.list.d by adding dev
*should* offered is Yes in synaptic includes libudev-dev,, in apt-get does not include libudev-dev
fleeting messages libdev-dev removed; a network thing yes (networking only with chosen wicd here manually.)
in etc/init.d there is no eudev there is No udev-finish there exists udev containing #Provides: udev
in /depend.boot references are udev
in /rcS.d link S02udev
Synaptic sources with dev. check.
Reload to see now no offer of libudev-dev

To remove that error do this
dpkg -i --force-overwrite /var/cache/apt/archives/libeudev1_3.2.5_amd64.deb
Please re-read the opening post carefully.

Full update from an old antiX 17 test install.
it brings in a new /etc/init.d/networking init script, but it appears to be working ok with ceni and my wi-fi. It is different than the one BJ put together.
However, running fine. Is the elogind stuff supposed to come in too, or is that extra/optional?February 15, 2018 at 11:26 am #6602Forum Admin
elogind stuff is optional (but will be included on antiX-17.1 (full and possibly base)

Since I am on testing and on my first few hours EVER on antix, I took a slower step of switching from libudev to libeudev, then added eudev 3.2.5 and rebooted (I did have to do some manhandling with dpkg from cache as I lost xorg and was asked to throw away the 4.14 kernel … didn’t record how and why, but kept the kernel and went back and reinstalled the desktop stuff). As soon as eudev was installed, luckily it was already in cache as I had lost connection) it all came back. So I rebooted and run inxi -Fxz and all was ok.
Then I added dev to testing and upgraded to the new stuff. Run inxi again, same good stuff, and rebooted.
I am now writing from what I came up with. !!! Three thumbs up!February 15, 2018 at 11:30 am #6604Forum Admin
You really should have followed the instructions in the first post. But,
all’s well that ends well

I know, I like living at the edge. I just lost the back end coming out of the exit, I cranked the throttle and pointed down the straight and it came back at the end. It was close 🙂
And this the day I picked for finally joining antix and in the newbie section one of my first questions was about eudev and openrc.
Half way there!
