Default udevinfo - where is it

Hi,

I have a recent GenToo system (udev-130-r1) but I cannot
find the utility 'udevinfo'
Which package contains it?

Many thanks for a hint,

Hi

$ qfile udevinfo
$ sys-fs/udev (/usr/bin/udevinfo)

Cheers,

With my udev-124-r1 it is in the udev package. But /usr/bin/udevinfo is
just a symlink to /sbin/udevadm, so maybe you should look for the latter.

Add: Just built 130-r1. In the messages for it is:
"If you build an initramfs including udev, then please make sure that
the /sbin/udevadm binary gets included, and your scripts changed to use
it, as it replaces the old helper apps udevinfo, udevtrigger, ..."

Unfortunately this is not the case here.

I believe
/sbin/udevadm
looks like a replacement, but I'm not sure.

udev has some problem with upgrading and loosing functions. I noticed
this a while ago. But all udev function like udevinfo, udevmonitor are
symlinks to udevadm. You can get all functionalities with "udevadm
info/monitor" etc.

Many thanks to all of you who helped.

(just a note: the symlinks are not installed automatically here)

Being curious and learning I didn't have the udevinfo symlink, I
created it and ran it:

# ( cd /sbin ; ln -s udevadm udevinfo )
# udevinfo
the program '/bin/bash' called 'udevinfo', it should use 'udevadm info
<options>', this will stop working in a future release missing option

I understand this to mean that the symlinks are obsolete and are being
deleted by newer ebuilds.
