  And once again thanks, I added this file to my /etc/udev/rules.d
directory and it is now consistently named>


KERNEL=="video[0-9]*",ATTR{name}=="gspca main \
KERNEL=="video[0-9]*",ATTR{name}=="ivtv0 encoder \

  What I find interesting is that there is very little info out there
dealing with openSuSE and udev.  (and what's
in /usr/share/doc/packages/udev/writing_udev_rules is innacurate to what
SuSE provides).
