When you do ls -l /dev/pilot, you should get a long line of info, which ends with /dev/pilot -> /dev/ttyUSB0 (or something similar). The fourth and fifth elements of the line (after a letter or dash, a series of nine [rwx] letters and/or dashes, and a short number) are the user and the group that own the file. So the second "word" is the group.
when I type the command to see the /dev/pilot location I get the following information
linux:/home/chacmool # ls -l /dev/pilot
drw------- 2 chacmool root 48 2007-02-18 18:06 .
drwxr-xr-x 36 root root 181872 2007-02-19 20:07 ..
I was wondering if maybe I am missing something??
well just let me know what you think. I appreciate your help.
That's what you get when the Palm Pilot is plugged in and the hot-sync button was just pressed?
Is udev installed?
I believe udev is installed,
