Recently I purchased a new motherboard and processor, and decided to 
upgrade the os as well, from openSUSE 10.2 to 10.3.

In the past I succeeded in detecting my DTP94 with a rather complex 
udev-rule which I presented here, and is discussed now in the install 

To my initial horror this udev-rule didn't work on my new system. I 
can't figure why, but I noticed two things. The kernelname of the 
device has changed. But after adapting that part of the rule, it 
appeared that the mode can not be changed  in this manner.

So I dug in my earlier experiments and came across an attempt that 
didn't work before, but does now. It depends on setting the owner of 
the devicefile. This is not as nice a solution as the mode-setting but 
as I said the mode will not let itself being set anymore.

ATTRS{idProduct}=="d094", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0765", OWNER="caspar"

On the other hand, it has the advantage of being a bit less complex ;-)

I thought I would let you know this, because of the earlier discussions 
we had on this subject.
