I think you need to compile the source code.  you will have downloaded
the file udev.tar.gz (i think)

Open a terminal and cd into the folder that has the file, eg if it is
on your desktop, you would go

cd /home/username/Desktop    (replace username with your username)

then you need to unpack the contents,

tar zxf udev.tar.gz

go to the new folder

cd udev

then you need to compile the source,

sudo make

sudo make install

that should do it :-)
