staying with my issue with udev and USB - I don't understand udev -
regardless of how much research that I do.

On my FC-2 computer...
# ls /dev/ttyUSB*
/dev/ttyUSB0  /dev/ttyUSB10  /dev/ttyUSB12  /dev/ttyUSB14  /dev/ttyUSB2  /dev/ttyUSB4  /dev/ttyUSB6  /dev/ttyUSB8
/dev/ttyUSB1  /dev/ttyUSB11  /dev/ttyUSB13  /dev/ttyUSB15  /dev/ttyUSB3  /dev/ttyUSB5  /dev/ttyUSB7  /dev/ttyUSB9

On my FC-3 computer
# ls /dev/ttyUSB*
ls: /dev/ttyUSB*: No such file or directory
# ls /dev/pilot
ls: /dev/pilot: No such file or directory
---then I push the sync button---
# ls /dev/ttyUSB*
ls: /dev/ttyUSB*: No such file or directory
# ls /dev/pilot
/dev/pilot
---so /dev/pilot shows up but not /dev/ttyUSB0 or /dev/ttyUSB1 though
they are mentioned in /var/log/messages...
# tail /var/log/messages

***and***
# cat /etc/udev/rules.d/10-udev.rules
BUS="usb", SYSFS{serial}="0000:00:02.1", NAME="pilot"
KERNEL="ttyUSB1",SYMLINK="pilot"

I'm frustrated that I can't figure this out.

1 - do I have to mknod /dev/ttyUSB0 and /dev/ttyUSB1 ?
2 - why does dlpsh and pilot-xfer -p /dev/pilot -L work but gpilotd
pointed to /dev/pilot never connect?
3 - is this a bugzilla issue or user that doesn't get it?

Thanks
Craig
