A missing tty device node for an USB dongle.
I was trying to make my MA-660 infrared dongle to work today again, which is supposed to be supported by GNU/Linux although apparently not very easy to set up (as in plug and play), but something's wrong.
This thread nicely describes the process of setting it up to work and I did as it's shown there. It's not that much of a hassle. However, the /dev/ttyUSB0 node is not created despite me loading all the mentioned modules. When I unplug it and then plug it back in the only thing I get in /var/log/messages is:
Jul 12 03:03:20 procyon kernel: [53502.401685] usb 5-2: new low speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 17
Jul 12 03:03:20 procyon kernel: [53502.617323] usb 5-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
So it doesn't detect it and attach it to a device node the way my USB modem does, for example. Why is that if I have the ma600-sir and other modules loaded? What else can I do for the device node to be created? It's the only thing missing here apparently.
