I'm apparently missing something.

Only the root user can use /dev/uscanner0. I can't
seem to rectify the
problem -- no matter what I do. I'm hoping one of you
all will look over
my work and show me my mistake.

Here's what I have done.

/etc/devfs.conf:
own uscanner* root:wheel
perm uscanner* 0666

/etc/devfs.rules:
[localrules=10]
add path 'uscanner*' mode 0666

/etc/rc.conf:
...
devfs_system_ruleset="localrules"



after reboot, I have:
$ ls -l /dev/uscanner0
crw-rw-rw-  1 root  wheel    0,  39 Oct  9 10:16
/dev/uscanner0

$ uname -a
FreeBSD turandot.opera 7.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT
#0: Sat Oct  7 13:33:34 MST 2006    
root@turandot.opera:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  i386

Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and extol and honor the King of heaven, for all his works are truth, and his ways are justice; and he is able to bring low those who walk in pride.
Daniel 4:37
