Re: No /dev/pmu

I originally installed 'pmud' as that is what I have used with Yellowdog Linux. I believe I also had to change the permissions on /etc/pmu to make the error message go away.

'pmud' was relaced when I installed 'pbbuttonsd'. See the posting on this list with the subject "pmud vs. pbbuttonsd on iBook" dated 8/11/04.

I have no /dev/pmu in a new installation of Sarge.  It is causing GNOME
to complain on startup and pbbuttonsd to fail to start.  How can I get
/dev/pmu back?  There is a /proc/pmu/ directory present.

I can't find any packages that seem to provide the facility to create a
/dev/pmu and I don't know the device numbers myself so wouldn't want to
use mknod directly.

I'd appreciate it if anyone could tell me how to make/restore my
/dev/pmu.  Thanks in advance,

bye just now,
