I'm writing an application to read/write to/from a serial port in Fedora14, and it works great when I run it as root. But when I run it as a normal user I'm unable to obtain the privileges required to access the device (/dev/ttySx). That's kind of crappy because now I can't actually debug the damn thing using Eclipse.
I've tried running Eclipse with sudo but it corrupts my workspace and I can't even open the project. So I'd like to know if it's possible to lower the access requirements to write to /dev/ttySx so that any normal user can access it. Is this possible?
