Force a USB device to use a specific /dev/ttyUSBX


Hi, I'm putting up this system to control my switches, I'm using a USB2Serial converter that I can get the id from in /proc/bus/usb/devices, there's a problem though, since it's USB it change tty device if I reboot the server that's controlling the switches and so on so I wonder if there's any way to force a specific Serialnumber from /proc/bus/usb/devices to be a specific /dev/ttyUSBX.

I'm using Fedora Core 4

this would presumably be irrelevant to the usb side of the device, instead you would assign this, in fc4 at least, via the udev framework defined in /etc/udev/ to use a certain device on recognising a certain attribute of the device

I've succeded to map a specific usbdevice to a /dev/device but don't get how to map the device so i can use it as an tty, how do i do this?

this is the rule for the device
BUS="usb", SYSFS{serial}="FTCD6IQC", NAME="USBconverterHP2626b", SYMLINK="usbconverters/USBHP2626b"

I think it's in the file /etc/udev/udev.d/static_devices.txt

Have a look at

well I came a bit but i solved it with a perlscript instead:

opendir(DIR, '/sys/class/tty/');
@files = grep { /ttyUSB/ } readdir(DIR);
closedir(DIR);

foreach (@files) {
$tmp = readpipe('udevinfo -a -p /sys/class/tty/'.$_.' | grep SYSFS{serial}==\"F');
@tmp2 = split('"', $tmp);
system('ln -s /dev/'.$_.' /dev/ttyUSB'.$tmp2[1]);
}
