Package-specific README for USBprog 2010-01-03
This package contains a udev rules file in /etc/udev/rules.d/ that puts the
USB device files below /dev/bus/usb/* that belogs to the hardware listed
below in the group '@@USBPROG_GROUP@@'. To enable access for an ordinary user,
put that user in the group '@@USBPROG_GROUP@@'.
This group has been chosen because of several reasons:
• the serial devices (/dev/tty*) are put into that group by the
• users that use microcontrollers usually also use a serial interface
for debugging, so the user is already in that group,
• in the avrdude package of openSUSE, the parallel port (/dev/parport*)
is in the 'uucp' group.
If you see any serious security problems in that decision, please report
this as bug. But don't come with HAL/PAM etc. solutions that are very
distribution-specific and change each year. Does anybody remember the
times when SUSE patched their software to use 'resmgr'?
