[OT] USB device allocation
I know it's off topic, but this is one of the few mailing lists I am
subscribed to that has useful information and intelligent respondents
(most of the time) :)
Is there a way of forcing a usb device (in this case a usb flash drive)
to always connect as /dev/sdb?
I have a camera that I also connect to my laptop, which I would prefer
to always be connected as dev/sda mainly for ease of use by family members.
i.e. if I have my usb drive connected first, and then my partner wishes
to connect the camera she will get very confused by the fact that when
she clicks on the camera icon on the desktop, it will open the USB
drive, unless I have removed the drive, in which case error messages
will pop up and she'll have kittens (a bit computer-phobic my partner).
any pointers/links to useful information would be greatly appreciated.
