  <refsect1><title>Description</title>
    <para>udev supplies the system software with device events, manages permissions
    of device nodes and may create additional symlinks in the <filename>/dev</filename>
    directory, or renames network interfaces. The kernel usually just assigns unpredictable
    device names based on the order of discovery. Meaningful symlinks or network device
    names provide a way to reliably identify devices based on their properties or
    current configuration.</para>

    <para>The udev daemon, <citerefentry><refentrytitle>udevd</refentrytitle>
    <manvolnum>8</manvolnum></citerefentry>, receives device uevents directly from
    the kernel whenever a device is added or removed from the system, or it changes its
    state. When udev receives a device event, it matches its configured set of rules
    against various device attributes to identify the device. Rules that match may
    provide additional device information to be stored in the udev database or
    to be used to create meaningful symlink names.</para>

    <para>All device information udev processes is stored in the udev database and
    sent out to possible event subscribers. Access to all stored data and the event
    sources is provided by the library libudev.</para>
  </refsect1>

  <refsect1><title>Configuration</title>
    <para>udev configuration files are placed in <filename>/etc/udev</filename>
    and <filename>/usr/lib/udev</filename>. All empty lines or lines beginning with
    '#' are ignored.</para>

    <refsect2><title>Configuration file</title>
      <para>udev expects its main configuration file at <filename>/etc/udev/udev.conf</filename>.
      It consists of a set of variables allowing the user to override default udev values.
      The following variables can be set:</para>
      <variablelist>
        <varlistentry>
          <term><option>udev_root</option></term>
          <listitem>
            <para>Specifies where to place the device nodes in the filesystem.
            The default value is <filename>/dev</filename>.</para>
          </listitem>
        </varlistentry>

        <varlistentry>
          <term><option>udev_log</option></term>
          <listitem>
            <para>The logging priority. Valid values are the numerical syslog priorities
            or their textual representations: <option>err</option>, <option>info</option>
            and <option>debug</option>.</para>
          </listitem>
        </varlistentry>
      </variablelist>
    </refsect2>

    <refsect2><title>Rules files</title>
      <para>The udev rules are read from the files located in the
      system rules directory <filename>/usr/lib/udev/rules.d</filename>,
      the volatile runtime directory <filename>/run/udev/rules.d</filename>
      and the local administration directory <filename>/etc/udev/rules.d</filename>.
      All rules files are collectively sorted and processed in lexical order,
      regardless of the directories in which they live. However, files with
      identical file names replace each other. Files in <filename>/etc</filename>
      have the highest priority, files in <filename>/run</filename> take precedence
      over files with the same name in <filename>/lib</filename>. This can be
      used to override a system-supplied rules file with a local file if needed;
      a symlink in <filename>/etc</filename> with the same name as a rules file in
      <filename>/lib</filename>, pointing to <filename>/dev/null</filename>,
      disables the rules file entirely.</para>

      <para>Rule files must have the extension <filename>.rules</filename>; other
      extensions are ignored.</para>

      <para>Every line in the rules file contains at least one key-value pair.
      There are two kind of keys: match and assignment.
      If all match keys are matching against its value, the rule gets applied and the
      assignment keys get the specified value assigned.</para>

      <para>A matching rule may rename a network interface, add symlinks
      pointing to the device node, or run a specified program as part of
      the event handling.</para>

      <para>A rule consists of a comma-separated list of one or more key-value pairs.
      Each key has a distinct operation, depending on the used operator. Valid
      operators are:</para>
      <variablelist>
        <varlistentry>
          <term><option>==</option></term>
          <listitem>

          <term><option>=</option></term>
          <listitem>
            <para>Assign a value to a key. Keys that represent a list are reset
            and only this single value is assigned.</para>
          </listitem>
        </varlistentry>

        <varlistentry>
          <term><option>+=</option></term>
          <listitem>
            <para>Add the value to a key that holds a list of entries.</para>
          </listitem>
        </varlistentry>

        <varlistentry>
          <term><option>:=</option></term>
          <listitem>
            <para>Assign  a  value  to  a key finally; disallow any later changes.</para>
          </listitem>
        </varlistentry>
      </variablelist>

      <para>The following key names can be used to match against device properties.
      Some of the keys also match against properties of the parent devices in sysfs,
      not only the device that has generated the event. If multiple keys that match
      a parent device are specified in a single rule, all these keys must match at
      one and the same parent device.</para>

            specified by separating the names by the space character. In case multiple
            devices claim the same name, the link always points to the device with
            the highest link_priority. If the current device goes away, the links are
            re-evaluated and the device with the next highest link_priority becomes the owner of
            the link. If no link_priority is specified, the order of the devices (and
            which one of them owns the link) is undefined. Also, symlink names must
            never conflict with the kernel's default device node names, as that would
            result in unpredictable behavior.
