    Hello,
    first let me thank the author for this driver, it works much better than the original Prolific one (at least for me :-)
    One question about the name of the device, would it be possible to have a device name like ttyUSBx? The problem is that I have some software requiring such a name so I need to create manually a link each time I plug the adapter.

    Thanks in advance
    Gaetano

      Hey,
      I just barely had the same problem. I just downloaded the source and changed osx_pl2303.h from
      #define baseName        "PL2303-"
      to
      #define baseName        "usbserial-"

      Everything built just fine. I installed the built file using this forum's advice: http://www.insanelymac.com/lofiversion/index.php/t47431.html and everything seems to work now! I hope that helps.

      TTFN
