Description Aristeu Rozanski 2006-11-28 17:30:47 EST
latest wdaemon package doesn't has the udev rules for creating
/dev/input/uinput* files so x.org can rely on fixed names.
Comment 1 Aristeu Rozanski 2006-12-06 14:24:39 EST
Created attachment 142977 [details]
updated version of wdaemon
Comment 2 Aristeu Rozanski 2006-12-06 14:28:50 EST
the latest wdaemon package creates uinput links on /dev/input/. Use only with
RHEL-4. For RHEL-5, with a better udev support, another solution will be used.
please test.
