Changes (by randy at linuxfromscratch.org):

  * owner:  randy at linuxfromscratch.org => blfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
  * status:  assigned => new
  * summary:  New package usbutils to complement pciutils => Udev rule
              required to support non-root use of lsusb
  * type:  enhancement => task

Comment:

 Updated the book by adding the usbutils package. However, the Udev
 rule above needs to be placed on the new devices page. As I'm not
 fully in tune with all the Udev rules, I'll defer to someone with
 a bit more knowelege to review the suggestion above and implement
 it.

 I can confirm that non-root users do not see any output when running
 the lsusb program.

 I'm leaving the bug open, removing myself as the owner and updating
 the subject description.
