I have an FTDI USB serial device plugged into a USB port on boot. I have set up a udev rule to create a fixed name for the port that it exposes. My problem is that on boot up the device sometimes gets identified before udev gets loaded. Other times udev gets loaded and my device gets detected and my expected devices shows up in /dev.

Is there any way to ensure that udev loads before the device is identified?

usbcore and udev initialization can differ greatly with kernel and distro versions. You should include more info about your system. – micke Dec 9 '11 at 23:58
