Description of problem:
Despite all access rights were set properly for user for /dev/ttyUSB* nodes, user can not open them. It seems only root can. I checked access rights:
crw-rw---- 1 root dialout 188
The user is in dialout group and can perfectrly open ports with the same access rights but belonging to different modules. I also checked if port is used by someone else by fuser, it's not. Still I get "Device or resource busy" error every time I try to open port for r/w.
Also if I disconnect my convertor and reconnect it again, node name is changed (number is increased by 1).

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

Tested more. It seems the problem is deeper, because ftdi_sio devices are also affected.
Comment 2 Josh Boyer 2013-03-12 16:26:20 EDT
Are you still seeing this with 3.7.9 or 3.8.2 in updates-testing?
Comment 3 The Source 2013-03-13 11:50:40 EDT
No, after upgrading to F18 3.8.2 problem is gone.
