Re: How can I disable all USB devices?

Sorry for reply so late. I'm an intern and I cannot test your suggestion in the past two days. I didn't fully understand this udev stuff and your reply, and here is my questions: a. about ":=" The man page says that the ":=" means that "Assign a value to a key finally; disallow any later changes, which may be used to prevent changes by any later rules." So I think a rule like this: SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ACTION=="add", RUN:="/test.sh usb" will prevent adding more programs to RUN, and finally stop calling any "modprobe" in /lib/udev/rules.d/80-drivers.rules so that drivers are not loaded. But the usb devices are still working. b. The function of steps 2 My environment is a costumed Linux, I cannot find /lib/modules/$(uname -r) directory... c. how to identify the device is a usb device. Just seeing the examples on http://www.reactivated.net/writing_udev_rules.html, I'm more confused. Each usb device has a particular match keys. I just want to know whether this device is connecting to usb ports, and manage it. If anybody has some hints, please tell me.
