I built Trinity without HAL and udev (165) seems to be working. tdebase would
not build with udev-181. One bug is that all loop devices are showing up under
kioslave media:/ which is bad for me since our distro is based on modules
mounted on loopback. I have a rules file in: /etc/udev/rules.d/10-local.rules

but this makes no difference.
