strange issues with squeeze and udev rules
 
Hi,

Maybe I'm missing something, or maybe it's a bug...

1. Is hal depreciated in squeeze, in favour of udev?
2. I'm not familiar with a Debian-specific way of doing any of this;
here is my resource for trackpoint configuration:
http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/How_to_configure_the_TrackPoint
3. The udev method didn't work as it should.

For /etc/udev/udev.d/10-trackpoint.rules to work, psmouse and
thinkpad_acpi need to be in the initramfs.
Otherwise, udev doesn't trigger /sys/devices/platform/i8042/serio1
udevadm test /sys/devices/platform/i8042/serio1
verifies that the 10-trackpoint.rules actually works, once the system is
up. udevadm test should not need to be manually invoked, with every
boot, in /etc/rc.local.

At any rate, adding psmouse and thinkpad_acpi to my initramfs is a good
enough work around for me...except that 10-trackpoint.rules needs to be
run after returning for hibernate.

Could someone please point me in the right direction, or perhaps offer a
better way of configuring this?

Thanks!
Nick

Have you read the above URL recently? It does point to "The Right Way",
which is using XInput. The usually favored program to control it is
gpointing-device-settings, which is of course available as an
Debian package.

This way is much more right than earlier ones (hal/udev/xorg.conf)
because it is done by the user rather than by the sysadmin.
