    you should not have to compile, make, install etc, ftdi_sio as it is
    included in modern openSUSE installs...all you need to do it make sure
    it loads into the kernel..

    try to type in a terminal:

    Code:
    su -
    and enter...do NOT forget the space dash at the end...you will be
    asked for the root password, but will not see it as you type it in,
    then press return and expect your prompt to turn to red, then type:

    Code:
    sbin/modprobe -v ftdi_sio

    This info is basically correct, but I offer a couple of critiques.
    First of all, it should be "/sbin/modprobe". Secondly, I do not
    recommend logging in as root (the "su -" part) to execute a single
    command. Instead, you should do the following command:

    Code:
    sudo  /sbin/modprobe  -v  ftdi_sio
    This form gives root privilege (once you give the root password) for
    the single command.

    I do not know why this driver does not autoload. What does the command
    'lsusb' show for the device?
