Lightbulb udev and minicom

I am working with slackware-current. After upgrade udev-096 minicom did not work nor as root or as user:
/dev/modem: no such device
Start minicom as root:
# minicom -s
and change serial port setup -> Serial device to /dev/ttyS0 (or whereever your serial line is connected). Now minicom works as root.

Minicom as user:

Execute the following command as root:
# chgrp uucp /dev/ttyS0
For permanent fix append in /etc/rc.d/rc.local the following line:
/usr/bin/chgrp uucp /dev/ttyS0
The user "me" must be menber of uucp: /etc/group
Have fun

I think that you should tell Pat that the /dev/modem symlink has disappeared.

It looks like a bug for me.


minicom, modem, udev
