Description Nathan Robertson 2004-03-28 04:45:49 UTC

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
PowerMac (ppc) machines should have /dev/adb (the bus that drives ADB
mice / keyboards).

/dev/pmu is the Power Management device for PowerMacs. We should have
this too.

I'll attach a patch to the spec file which will do this.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to use any program that interfaces /dev/adb or /dev/pmu, such
as pbbuttonsd.

Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2004-04-15 07:52:58 UTC
Should these device nodes be present on ppc64 systems as well?

Comment 3 Nathan Robertson 2004-04-15 17:32:09 UTC
For pSeries, I doubt it. If those users aren't complaining about them
not being there, then I guess they don't need them. The exception may
be the G5, but I'd take that as a separate bug if somebody reports it.
I don't have any ppc64 hardware to test with (I'm testing on G3 and G4).

Comment 5 David Woodhouse 2004-04-18 16:35:03 UTC
Might as well include the device nodes on ppc64 too, as it does no
harm there, and G5 powerbooks will eventually turn up.

Comment 6 Barry K. Nathan 2004-05-22 22:30:48 UTC
Are there going to be any G5 PowerBooks with *ADB*? /dev/pmu on ppc64
in anticipation of a PowerBook G5 makes sense, but /dev/adb?

IMO it would make the most sense to create /dev/adb and /dev/pmu on
ppc32, and /dev/pmu without /dev/adb on ppc64.

Comment 7 David Woodhouse 2004-05-24 08:21:47 UTC
The G4 powerbooks see the internal keyboard and touchpad as ADB
peripherals. I don't see why the G5 powerbooks should be different.
There's no harm in creating /dev/adb there too.

Comment 8 Barry K. Nathan 2004-05-24 09:18:40 UTC
Ah, I didn't realize that! I thought Apple had completely killed
ADB... Never mind my previous comment, then.

Comment 9 Colin Charles 2004-06-24 13:49:38 UTC
Seems to be fixed with MAKEDEV-3.7-2 (and possibly earlier).
