Comment 1 Nils Philippsen 2006-07-28 05:26:10 EDT

could udev maybe just ignore too long _comment_ lines like the one it complains
about in this case -- it's a large number of scanner models covered by one
vendor/product code? While I could just take the rules and cut off lines that
are too long (how long may they be anyway), I think in this case allowing such
long comments (udev won't be doing anything with them, will it?) would be
Comment 2 Kay Sievers 2006-08-02 10:37:42 EDT
Udev rule lines can be 512 chars long. Sounds like a _very_ long comment. :)
Comment 3 Nils Philippsen 2006-08-03 08:22:41 EDT
It is ;-). Still, it should be easy to read the line into that buffer, check the
buffer if it's a comment and only complain if it isn't.
Comment 4 drago01 2006-08-04 10:52:30 EDT
can the comment be splitted in multiple lines?
