Re: trackpad on powerbook

Sometime in February Colin Leroy assaulted the keyboard and produced:

| Certainly :)

I don't know if you caught this in the original post, but this is a new
powerbook (released last week). I'm really starting to think that the old
adb drivers don't work with the newer models.

All the output I sent in response to your initial questions was for a 2.6
kernel. I've been trying both 2.4 and 2.6 kernels to see if that might fix
things. I'm not too worried about getting a usb mouse working if I cannot
figure out the trackpad.

 What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, 
 and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is brought 
 under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of 
 liberty and democracy?
