I have a USB capable kernel, and a shiny new digital camera to play
with. Currently all is working pretty well - my camera gets recognised,
added to /proc/bus/usb/devices, and a node created for it in
/proc/bus/usb/001/xxx. The problem is that the node is created with
root:root ownership, and 644 permissions, meaning that applications run
with normal user pleb permissions (me) can't write to it - for some
reason gphoto expects to have write permission to the camera <shrug>.
So the question is - how can I get usbdevfs nodes to be created with 666
permissions, evil and all as they are? :)
