Dear D1rs,

it looks like the package might have hiccups when multiarch is
enabled. In particular, it seems that on amd64 with multiarch enabled
and i386 active, the i386 package gets installed instead than the
amd64 one. If this happens to you, just

apt-get -t experimental install eudev:amd64

before rebooting, and please report it.

A more extensive testing of istallation in different multiarch
environments would be welcome.
