/dev/ttyUSB? disappaers on SuSE 9.1 with pilot-link
I'd like to use pilot-link to do a backup of my Clié NX70V/E.
As I first installed kdepim3-kpilot-3.2.1-35, every times I press the HotSync button a message box indicate that kpilotDaemon was doing a sync. so I remove it with:
rpm -e kdepim3-kpilot-3.2.1-35
If a try to do a pilot-xfer -L , it returns the folowing log:
The device /dev/ttyUSB1 does not exist..
mknod /dev/ttyUSB1 c <major> <minor>
Unable to bind to port: /dev/ttyUSB1
Please use --help for more information
So I did as root:
mknod /dev/ttyUSB1 c 188 1
chmod a+rw /dev/ttyUSB?
chmod 0666 /dev/ttyUSB?
Next time pilot-xfer -L is running fine. My problem is if a re-do a pilot-xfer -L I got the first log: The device /dev/ttyUSB1 does not exist.. . And there is no more /dev/ttyUSB1 , some process remove the device. If I re-do a mknod .. it's fine. I have to create the device after each use of pilot-xfer ...
It was running with the SuSE 9.0 (kernel 2.4), on the same hardware.
Thanks for your help
