Note To Self

This is how you set up the digitemp device the next time the SSD breaks down and you’ve forgotten to back up the /etc directory:

[larsi@stories ~]$ cat /etc/udev/rules.d/20-digitemp.rules
ATTRS{idVendor}==”0403″, ATTRS{idProduct}==”6001″, MODE=”0666″, NAME=”digitemp”

It’s “ATTRS” now, not “ATTR”.  Or “SYSFS”.  Thanks a lot, udev people.  Changing the names to be used in the conf files all the time really helps.  A lot.  Thanks.

Now we have a conf file, so we can use the device:

[larsi@stories ~]$ digitemp_DS9097U -q -c /etc/digitemp.conf -a

Couldn’t be simpler.
