I have two identical USB serial adapters attached to a Raspberry Pi. One of them regularly crashes (no idea why, maybe a kernel bug – the hardware was already replaced) but it seems to work again after resetting that USB device.
So these are the file system paths that I know:
I need the first one. Then I can reset it with this command:
sudo usbreset 001/004
The two numbers are the bus and device number of the USB device. I can find them in very long listings from very long
udevadm commands. But it's a complicated task. I'm looking for a way of getting information like that:
- /dev/ttyUSB0 -> 001/004
- /dev/ttyUSB1 -> 001/005
How can I get such simple information? The numbers change after resetting the device so I need to determine them freshly every time.
