h4. Rules to access the cards - UDEV rules

To fix the path to access a device is interesting to set UDEV rules on the system. On this section we provide a general approach to the set up of UDEV rules, leaving the details for the specific pages of each compatible device.

Create the file {{/etc/udev/rules.d/galicaster.rules}}, which will contain the udev rules that will be applied to the devices.
