Description Samuel Thibault 2007-05-16 23:29:08 UTC
Description of problem:
Default handlers (like the brltty daemon) don't work anymore with version 1.20 of gpm.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run brltty -b no -l 7 -n -e -x lx

Actual results:
notice the GPM errors about "Inappropriate ioctl for device"

Expected results:
There shouldn't be such error

Additional info:
This is because in Gpm_Open(), the flag<0 case isn't even treated in any particular way any more since version 1.20. The attached patch should fix that.
