Re: /dev/usb is a character device instead of a directory

Hello,

I have just upgraded an old Fedora Core 2 installation to Fedora Core 3. Everything seems to be working fine, except that after upgrading, "/dev/usb" is no longer a directory containing device files, but is now a normal character device file:

# ls -l /dev/usb
crw-------  1 root root 180, 0 ene 30 12:28 /dev/usb

Don't know what's going on here, but this has some nasty consequences, like UDEV being unable to create the device file for my USB printer into "/dev/usb/lp0".

I have searched in Google for similar reports but couldn't find anything related. Could anyone throw some light at this?

Not sure why /dev/usb is being created but here is a workaround:


1. Turn off printer
2. rm /dev/usb
3. mkdir /dev/usb
4. Turn on printer (/dev/usb/lp0 should be created automatically)
5. cp -a /dev/usb /etc/udev/devices/.


Thanks!
