Nice to know that. But, I think I will deliver a big patch for the
keyboard story. Then, I will need some testers. Thanks to be one of them

First, you must know that some of the drivers are not modularized yet. I
think that it looks like pc modules. But since I am not a guru in this

I would like to know. I think, if you read at Paul Bame litterature, he
said that it is broken for 2.4.0.
I can grab old versions with cvs co -r 1.83 linux, for example.
To know the release you want, use this:

Thanks again for reporting, Thomas.

PS: I also hope an explanation of modules on hppa. I will have to write
all the cleanup stuff for the mouse.
