I am using an arm processor and linux busybox as my OS. I want to add udev running in my system. The system has mdev. But doesn't seem to fulfill my need. How can I add udev for my system?

thank you.

Not that I know anything about embedded, but I'm curious - what need does mdev not fulfill? – new123456 Jun 4 '11 at 13:58
Hi, I want to mount a usb device based on the port they attached. In udev I can write something like this. BUS=="usb",ID="1-2", KERNEL=="sd?1" NAME="pen1"; How can I write it using mdev? – gosk Jun 4 '11 at 14:20
