Description Nicholas Miell 2005-09-22 19:38:55 EDT
The current udev rules have udev creating js nodes in /dev/input, when they
should be in /dev (existing apps have this location hardcoded).

KERNEL=="js*",                  NAME="input/%k"
KERNEL=="js*",                  NAME="%k"
in udev-069/etc/udev/redhat/udev.rules fixes this (and, as a bonus, makes
pam_console_apply actually change the permissions for /dev/js* appropriately for
console users -- /etc/security/console.perms still has the old patch).
