AW: Kernel and Gadget Specification

According to the kernel snap specification. If I have a custom kernel containing a custom kernel module. How would I add an udev rule to be able to set the rights of the device file created in /dev ? So that “Non-root” users also would be able to access the device?

Thank you,

Betreff: Kernel and Gadget Specification

Hello all,

There's quite a bit of anxiety towards releasing device images that can run Snappy 2.0, and at the same time there is significant concern that we'll release something that will soon break due to the pending design of the new kernel and gadget format.

On that basis, this is a proposal for a minimal specification for these snaps that will solve both of these issues:

Note that the kernel snap remains as rich as it is today, simply polishing the way we specify the details slightly.

The gadget snap, on the other hand, is being completely stripped out. We'll internally define a minimal working setup, and will reintroduce the flexibility gradually under a polished layout without breaking any existent deployments.
