I have installed a driver on my Suse, and changed the permissions for him- /dev/name, with chgrp command.

but after rebooting my computer- the change was lost. What should I do?

Thanks in advance,

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

This question is more appropriate for superuser (or maybe server fault) rather than stack overflow. – Noufal Ibrahim Dec 1 '10 at 7:27

You need to write a udev rule to run an external program to change ownership of the device node.
