SYSFS{}= will be removed in a future udev version, please use ATTR{}= to match the event device, or ATTRS{}= to match a parent device, in /etc/udev/rules.d/z60_xserver-xorg-input-wacom.rules:65

While upgrading from Lenny to Squeeze, at each boot, I had these messages :

udevd[371]: SYSFS{}= will be removed in a future udev version, please use ATTR{}= to match the event device, or ATTRS{}= to match a parent device, in /etc/udev/rules.d/z60_xserver-xorg-input-wacom.rules:65
udevd[371]: SYSFS{}= will be removed in a future udev version, please use ATTR{}= to match the event device, or ATTRS{}= to match a parent device, in /etc/udev/rules.d/z60_xserver-xorg-input-wacom.rules:66

After searches, I have found that this error was known in the Debian bug tracking system .

Looking at the bug #565126, here is the workaround. Purge the package xserver-xorg-input-wacom and reinstall it according to the following way :

root@localhost:~# apt-get remove –purge xserver-xorg-input-wacom

root@localhost:~# apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-all

The udev file for the wacom devices is now the following one :

fool@localhost:~$ dpkg -L xserver-xorg-input-wacom | grep udev/rules.d/
/lib/udev/rules.d/69-xserver-xorg-input-wacom.rules

Henceforth, no more messages like the ones above will appear.
