Description Bert DeKnuydt 2010-06-23 10:41:15 EDT
Description of problem:

Plug in a USB IOwarrior device.  The device-files appears where expected,
but are accessible only by root.  I'd expect them rw by whoever has
console access.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

udev-151-10.fc13.x86_64

How reproducible:

Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. plug in e.g. an IO-warrior40 device 
2. see that no acl is set for the currently logged in user(s)
3.
  
Additional info:

This is similar to Bug 45642 once submitted by me, but that was the
hal solution.  

You could also use the more crude /etc/security/console.perms.d/ approach.

Patch:

Add this to /lib/udev/rules.d/70-acl.rules

-----------
# IOWarrior

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="07c0", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1500", ENV{ACL_MANAGE}="1"
-----------

(And the same for idProduct 1501, 1503, 1511 and 1512, which are other
USB IOWarrior devices; there may be even more)
Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2010-06-25 07:55:55 EDT
Hmm, please put this rule in your private /etc/udev/rules.d/70-iowarrior-acl.rules

We cannot permit general access by default. This is your private config.
Comment 2 Bert DeKnuydt 2010-06-25 10:19:42 EDT
Well, that's what I did actually.  

But I don't agree with the fact that it should be in private config.  

I see no difference between a iowarrior device and e.g. a USB music player or e.g. DVB stick: the user that can physically plug it in should be able to use it. 

That's of course not a technical issue, so it can be discussed...
