Trackpad on new Powerbook5,6 doesn't work


I just wanted to add that I have the same problem as John Harrold:
With a very new Alu Powerbook (some BIOS date while booting showed
January 21th, 2005) the trackpad doesn't work with Debian sarge.

I tried kernel-image-2.6.8-powerpc (2.6.8-9) and a vanilla 2.6.11.

The keyboard works and it seems as if keyboard and mouse are one USB
device with ID 05ac:020f, as dmesg says:

usbcore: registered new driver hiddev
input: USB HID v1.10 Keyboard [Apple Computer Apple Internal Keyboard/Trackpad] on usb-0001:10:1a.0-2
HID device not claimed by input or hiddev
usbhid: probe of 1-2:1.1 failed with error -5
input: USB HID v1.10 Device [Apple Computer Apple Internal Keyboard/Trackpad] on usb-0001:10:1a.0-2
input: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [Logitech USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse] on usb-0001:10:1b.0-1
usbcore: registered new driver usbhid
drivers/usb/input/hid-core.c: v2.0:USB HID core driver

My kernel config, dmesg output and device-tree can be downloaded from


P.S.: Does anyone know how to enable VGA or DVI output on this device?
