Default wammu error

hello,

I'm trying to get gammu to connect to a motorola razor phone
under gentoo (kde4).
lsusb shows:
Bus 002 Device 008: ID 22b8:2b44 Motorola PCS

I get this message when using the "guided" part of the wizard
for initial setup:

" Error opening device
You don't have permissions for /dev/bus/usb/002
Maybe you need to be member of the root group"


I'm in the many groups including but not limited to:
wheel, tty, usb....

End of dmesg files shows:
usb 2-7: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 7
usb 2-7: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
usb 2-7: USB disconnect, address 7
usb 2-7: new full speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 8
usb 2-7: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

upon connecting and disconnecting usb to cell phone.

ls shows /dev/bus/usb/002

crw-rw-r-- 1 root usb 189, 128 Jun 8 23:54 001
crw-rw-r-- 1 root usb 189, 129 Jun 8 23:54 002
crw-rw-r-- 1 root usb 189, 130 Jun 8 23:54 003
crw-rw-r-- 1 root usb 189, 131 Jun 8 23:54 004
crw-rw-r-- 1 root usb 189, 135 Jun 16 15:35 008

So what's the deal? Suggests on this or another software
package to access the motorola razor cell phone is appreciated.


suggestions?

How was the device node chosen? It appears there is no device connected
to /dev/bus/usb/002, but rather /dev/bus/usb/008.


Although the software reports a permissions issue, perhaps the problem
is related to a bad choice of device node?


Hope that helps,
Carlos

this shows several connection/disconnection cycles
with address either ..../002/007 or .../002/008

These devices have the absolute path of

/dev/bus/usb/002/<001,002,003,005 or 008>

I did nothing to create a device node. Kernel config issue?
Custom udev rule?
dbus trickery?

Hal mystery (need dale on this one....)


Dunno, that's why I posted, as to guidance on using
a motorola (razor) phone with wammu, gammu or any other
cell based software that works reasonably well with gentoo,
are all valid snippets of information, of keen interest to me.

I still have hal on here just not for my keyboard and mouse. I did run
into a rules problem one time a good while back, printer I think or
maybe my camera. I removed all the rules and then re-emerged hal. I
then restarted hal and things worked fine. If you use KDE, I would log
out and back in just in case. I would copy them to another location
instead of deleting them tho. You may have one that you need or need to
reference back to, in case it is a bug and you want to report it or
something.


Hope that helps.

OK.

Thanks for that input.
I'll mess around with udev and hal
and see what I come up with.
