Thanks. I was looking for such function since years!
- How to load uinput module? Actually I modprobe and I pool
I expect that it would be autoloaded by udev when the hardware is
uinput is "input from userspace", so no hardware.
But probably CONFIG_INPUT_UINPUT must be set "y" on debian kernels.
- init.d script is still need for shutdown phase
Is there any point in killing such a daemon on shutdown instead of
letting the generic init scripts do it?
Maybe. I like to manually start and stop daemons (especially
for tests), and for upgrades I think we need a sysadmin method for stop and
(re)start a deamon.
But I'll think more about this.
