it is possible that the '/dev/hsfdcp0' device is not created by udev. As 
a workaround, you could try to run the 'hsfconfig --serial' command in a 
root shell, this command should create the missing device until the next 
reboot since you are using udev.

It is also possible that upgrading to the latest version of the HSF 
driver available at:


will solve this problem as we have improved udev support in recent releases.
