Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

am experiencing some troubles with udev on embedded linux (running on kernel 188.8.131.52). The embedded system has 2 USB ports width 2 identical USB GPRS modems. But each modem has different SIM and is supposed to comunicate with different peers. What I need is to distinguish these two modems not by name (kernel assign names like ttyACM0 and ttyACM1 in order in witch the modems were plugged in) but by the topology position, for example:
/dev/modem1 for device plugged in usb port 1
/dev/modem2 for device plugged in usb port 2
but the symlinks are not created when pluging the devices. Even udevtest for /class/tty/ttyACM0 doesn't seem to find any suitable rules to add. But if I add a rule for network, like:
the udevtest /class/net/eth0 prints a message that a symlink called test_net would by created, so udev is probably working. I tried to modify rules such as SUBSYSTEM=="usb" (just for test) and still nothing happened. Am I missing something?
