I can't get a permissions file in /etc/udev/permissions.d to be used.

I've got:

[root@prfax permissions.d]# ls -al
total 24
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root 4096 Mar 23 11:20 .
drwxr-xr-x  6 root root 4096 Mar 23 11:23 ..
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 3508 Mar  8 03:04 50-udev.permissions
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  169 Mar 23 11:20 vsifax.permissions
[root@prfax permissions.d]# cat vsifax.permissions
# /etc/udev/udev.permissions:  permission/ownership map for udev

# VSI*FAX MODEM devices

After a reboot - the ttyS1 and ACM[01] files are still owned by root
as per the 50-udev.permissions file. It appears that my extra permissions
file doesn't get applied.

even if you name it 49-vsifax.permissions ???
Comment 3 james.davis 2005-08-18 11:29:19 EDT
I renamed my script to 49-vsifax.permissions and I'll have to schedule
a reboot to test.
Comment 4 james.davis 2005-08-26 13:27:28 EDT
The rename worked - IMHO the udev manpage wasn't clear enough about this.
Please close.
