Description Brian Daniels 2006-03-21 15:01:24 EST
Description of problem:
The default udev rules state that input devices should be created 0660 in
/etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules:
KERNEL=="input/*",              MODE="0660"

but the actual files are being created 0600:
$ls -la /dev/input/
total 0
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root    180 Mar 21 14:59 .
drwxr-xr-x 12 root root   4240 Mar 21 14:59 ..
crw-------  1 root root 13, 64 Mar 21 14:59 event0
crw-------  1 root root 13, 65 Mar 21 14:59 event1
crw-------  1 root root 13, 66 Mar 21 14:59 event2
crw-------  1 root root 13, 67 Mar 21 14:59 event3

Custom rules (0666, etc) also seem to be ignored, as does a rule placed
in 05-udev-early.rules.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
udev-084-13

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system, ls -la /dev/input/
  
Actual results:
event* files have 0600 permissions

Expected results:
event* files should be 0660, or match custom rule settings.

Argh.  Nevermind, you guys are using console.perms.d to control this, overriding
the udev.  Please ignore.
