Create /dev/bus_pirate on Linux

Posted on Friday, October 16th, 2009 in Bus Pirate, Linux by Ian


blue.zener demonstrates some handy Linux UDEV foo that assigns the Bus Pirate to /dev/bus_pirate, instead of the boring /dev/ttyusb. This can be used to give any device a more memorable name under Linux.

Thanks for the tip!

    Or, if you don’t want to know about udev or write anything into /etc, you can use the /dev/serial tree. At the moment I have an arduino and a bus pirate plugged in:

    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 Jun 3 22:51 /dev/serial/by-id/usb-FTDI_FT232R_USB_UART_A900gbcG-if00-port0 -> ../../ttyUSB0
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 Jun 4 23:25 /dev/serial/by-id/usb-FTDI_FT232R_USB_UART_AH00MQL2-if00-port0 -> ../../ttyUSB1
