vmware player usb device on slackware 14.0

view full story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I just installed Slackware 14.0. I installed vmware player using this command: sh VMware-$NAME-$VERSION.bundle --console --ignore-errors Which I found from this website: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-14/installation-of-vmw... That allowed me to install a guest version of Windows XP (microcontroller programming). But I'm unable to connect a usb device to the guest xp vm. The usb device is acting like a serial device. Any thoughts? (HowTos)
