I'm just a user, but perhaps this will help.
I encountered this on Fedora, which doesn't automagically install the UDEV
rules under fedora because it doesn't bother to distinguish Fedora from
Got this response:
"Most udev-based systems replace '/' with either '_' or '.', both of which
our software can handle. (Unfortunately, we do not control the serial
number of these devices; they are the unique IDs provided by the CPU inside
I manually symlinked /lib/udev/rules.d/60-UDEKEY01.rules ->
../../../usr/share/ekeyd/60-UDEKEY01.rules to get things to work. That
doesn't help with CentOS, of course.
But I presume that if you do something like sed -e 's|/|_|g' on the serial
number, things will work for you.

if any, on the matters discussed.

The WARNING file from the ekeyd v1.1.3 package says to do this for
[root at centos5 ~]# mkdir -p /var/run/entropykeys
[root at centos5 ~]# ekey-ulusbd -b002 -d007
Hmmmm. Yes, well, my serial number has a '/' character in it, which
precludes using it as a file or directory name.
What to do?
