Summary0003275: hackrf udev rule not installed correctly
DescriptionI'm not sure where the bug is exactly (I believe it's upstream) but the hackrf package has the following in its sources:


What *actually* seems to be installed is a file called


and the contents are:
steev@eren:~/sandbox/hackrf/hackrf-2015.07.2/debian $ cat ~/60-libhackrf0.rules

This is obviously an invalid udev rule;

The actual contents should be:
ATTR{idVendor}=="1d50", ATTR{idProduct}=="604b", SYMLINK+="hackrf-jawbreaker-%k", MODE="660", GROUP="plugdev"
ATTR{idVendor}=="1d50", ATTR{idProduct}=="6089", SYMLINK+="hackrf-one-%k", MODE="660", GROUP="plugdev"
ATTR{idVendor}=="1d50", ATTR{idProduct}=="cc15", SYMLINK+="rad1o-%k", MODE="660", GROUP="plugdev"
ATTR{idVendor}=="1fc9", ATTR{idProduct}=="000c", SYMLINK+="nxp-dfu-%k", MODE="660", GROUP="plugdev"

Additional InformationI'm setting this to major because a) i don't believe hackrf works properly without the rules in place, and b) looking in the journal, it says the rules file is invalid (and I'm not sure if it continues processing other rules and ignores the invalid one, or just exits then.

I came across this when tracking down why my wlan interfaces are still getting the systemd predictable names even with net.ifnames=0 set on the cmdline.
