Bug Description


inside file and there is an absolute path on call udevadm program.

In this case an absolute path is not the best solution because on different distro path could be different. For example on gentoo distro udevadm path is /usr/bin/udevadm.

About this there are two solutions:

a) use directly name of the program without absolute path , so in this case only "udevadm" (Eventually add note that this program must be present on PATH of the neutron agent/daemon.

b) manage a variable like root_helper , for example udevadm_helper to permit configuration of the path from configuration file.

Probably solution a could be sufficient in this case.

    Execute udevadm on other linux installs

    When ofa and ovs neutron agents start, they use the linux utility
    'udevadm'. It is passed as an argument with an absolute directory path
    which can vary on each linux install. By removing the directory path,
    it will find this utility by way of the user's environment path since
    linux executables are configured in each user's path upon user creation.
