All device related, such as
atarimouse, amigamouse, sunmouse, adbmouse, ...
Mmm, okay, that should be easy then: it's just like detecting ps/2
devices presumably, see below.
I've a ps/2 on my powerpc.
Detection is hmmm ... not easy. How will you detect ps/2 versus serial mice
Oh, *that* part is easy. If you can open /dev/psaux then there is a
ps/2 mouse. The kernel takes care of the device detection for you.
And for your last question: for what will you use the 'virtual frambuffer device'
on x11? It is not clear for me ...
Here's the idea: I don't have an Amiga, so if I were to write Amiga
framebuffer support for BOGL, I couldn't test it. However, with BOGL
writing to a virtual framebuffer on /dev/fb0, I could then write an
X11 program to read the virtual framebuffer on /dev/fb0 and display it
in a window, thus allowing me to test it in at least a primitive way.
I was wondering if such an X11 program already existed. (It probably
