Description Michal Jaegermann 2005-01-07 02:44:15 UTC
Description of problem:

A comment in /etc/hotplug/usb/libusbscanner says

    # If the scanner is "cold plugged," this event will likely occur 
    # before the root filesystem is writeable, but no-one seems to
    # know how to fix that.

What about the attached patch?  It seems to work for me just fine.
OTOH this may be only important when nobody is actually logged on
a console but a scanner can be used by remote logins.  Not a "normal"
situation but not unheard of either.  After a console login
pam reapplies permission given in /etc/security/console.perms
with a link which already exists.
