Re: Can't install acpi-support (no acpi-fakekey for PPC)

"PBButtonsd is a daemon which brings support for many Laptop specific
functions to Linux. Basically it was designed to support Apple iBooks,
Powerbooks or TiBooks but since version 0.5 the design has been
changed to support any Notebook.

>From its roots pbbuttons support Apple PowerBooks and iBooks by 100%.
Support for the new Intel based MacBooks is very new but grows
steadily. I would say we reached 70% by now. Also the support for
other intel based notebooks jumped forward by adding the ACPI support
to pbbuttonsd, but because laptop support is very hardware dependent,
I guess we have only 30% on this machines. Help to build up support
for more machines is always welcome."
