Description Bryn M. Reeves 2007-03-26 11:14:35 UTC
Description of problem:
The 1394th raw device node is /dev/raw/raw1394 and the device has a kernel name
of raw1394. IEEE1394 (firewire) allows raw access to the 1394 protocol using a
device which also has a kernel name of raw1394.

Attempting to create /dev/raw/raw1394 via a command like:

# raw /dev/raw/raw1394 /dev/<bdev>

ends up creating /dev/raw1394 instead, because of the following line in

# IEEE1394 (firewire) devices (must be before raw devices below)
KERNEL=="raw1394",              NAME="%k"

This needs to be more specific, for example:

SUBSYSTEM=="ieee1394_protocol", KERNEL=="raw1394",       NAME="%k"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
udev-095-17.fc6, udev-095-14.5.el5

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. raw /dev/raw/raw1394 /dev/<bdev>
Actual results:
/dev/raw1394 is created.

Expected results:
/dev/raw/raw1394 is created.
