Assign one USB-storage device to one device file
I have several USB-storage devices that I regularly use (camera, cardreaders, usb-discs ...).
They all work fine but they always get a different device-file depending on the order I plug them in.
So how can I make sure that my camere for example is always on /dev/sda, my hard-discs on /dev/sdb and /dev/sdc, no matter when or in which order I plug them into my PC to make it easier to maintain them in /etc/fstab?
Is that even possible at all?
Yes it is. You need kernel 2.6 and udev.
When you get this working, you can write rules for udev to assign devices to device files. See http://www.reactivated.net/udevrules.php
