348Now, let's perform one more step to get our system to be more like the
349Installation CD -- let's emerge <c>coldplug</c>. While the initrd autodetects
350hardware that is needed to boot your system, <c>coldplug</c> autodetects
351everything else. To emerge and enable <c>coldplug</c>, type the following:

360You no longer need to emerge <c>coldplug</c> if you're using <c>udev</c> version
361103 and higher. If you receive a message that <c>udev</c> blocks <c>coldplug</c>
362from being installed, then you don't need to install <c>coldplug</c>.
