Remember this is Slackware 10 here I am talking about - Slackware 10.1 has
been released since, that uses as stock udev 50. Slackware current uses udev
54. Trouble is here also, GLIBC has been updated in latest Slackware[s], so
there is no real upgrade path for Slack 10 users other than the whole
caboodle - which breaks a lot if you have all the latest 'other stuff' built
from source anyway.

I guess many users don't upgrade all the system like I do to find these
problems. This appears to be just a gotcha for old Slackware 10 users like
me. Sometimes you read stuff about doing an upgrade, and unless it pokes yer
eye out with a big stick you miss it... so it is isn't a big deal as long as
people know about it - it's an easy fix.
