But one has to run '/etc/rc.d/devfs restart' for newly added rules to take effect! (or reboot the system, which is overkill). You can try it out by adding a rule to /etc/devfs.rules and running 'devfs rule show' (as root). The new rule won't show up until after one has run 'etc/rc.d/devfs restart'. Maybe I whould add that to the manual page for devfs.rules? I thought this was obvious, because most if not all rc.d scripts work that way, but mayby it's not clear enough.
