LFS201 - Chapter 27 Discussion // Questions // Banter - Devices and udev
Lab 27.1: we need to be able to connect a USB device so we can validate the rules we create. I'm not sure how I can do this on a GCP virtual environment.
I've looked at two potential options but I'm not sure if either provides precisely what I'm looking for.
uMockDev provides a way to capture a devices connection event data and replay it in a sandboxed environment.
Because the mock connection is in a sandboxed (testbed) environment it may not pickup the rules set in
I think this option relies on a complete QEMU system which is far more than what's necessary for this exercise.
Does anyone else have experience with this?
Any alternatives or advice is greatly appreciated.
