OK, there's a new version of the package on my FTP site, it handles the rc
symlinks itself now and has a pwrctl function added for the iBook and
Pismo models. It would be good to see how that works in practice when pmud
attempts to put the machine to sleep (due to low power). I force the
display backlight to 0 (off) and the disk to shut down (hdparm -Y) which
worked OK for me (took a few hda timeouts and such to recover from it). If
there's any other components that can be shut down from user space please
let me know (hdc would be another candidate if it's installed - is the
Pismo media bay or iBook CDROM at hdc?
I'll upload the package to unstable immediately. It won't go into potato
anymore but that shouln't be too bad. If someone on debian-powerpc
objects, please CC me, I'm not on that list yet.
