207<note>
208You no longer need to emerge <c>coldplug</c> if you're using udev version 103
209and higher, as udev itself will handle module loading. If you are upgrading to
210version 103, you must unmerge coldplug (<c>emerge -aC coldplug</c>) before
211upgrading udev. Be sure to remove the coldplug init script from all runlevels
212(<c>rc-update del coldplug</c>), and then delete it from
213<path>/etc/init.d/</path> afterward.
