ADBMS(4) BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual ADBMS(4)NAME
adbms -- support for ADB mice, trackballs, and touchpads
adbms* at nadb?
wsmouse* at adbms?
The adbms driver handles most relative ADB pointing devices within the wscons(4) framework. For touchpads it also provides support for
translating tapping the pad to mouse button events.
Tapping support can be turned on or off on a per-device basis using sysctl(8):
0 disables tapping, 1 enables it.

WSMUX(4) BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual WSMUX(4)NAME
wsmux -- console keyboard/mouse multiplexor for wscons
wskbd* at ... mux 1
wsmouse* at ... mux 0
The wsmux is a pseudo-device driver that allows several wscons(4) input devices to have their events multiplexed into one stream.
The typical usage for this device is to have two multiplexors, one for mouse events and one for keyboard events. All wsmouse(4) devices
should direct their events to the mouse mux (normally 0) and all keyboard devices, except the console, should direct their events to the key-
board mux (normally 1). A device will send its events to the mux indicated by the mux locator. If none is given the device will not use a
multiplexor. The keyboard multiplexor should be connected to the display, using the wsconscfg(8) command. It will then receive all key-
strokes from all keyboards and, furthermore, keyboards can be dynamically attached and detached without further user interaction. In a simi-
lar way, the window system will open the mouse multiplexor and receive all mouse events; mice can also be dynamically attached and detached.
If a wskbd(4) or wsmouse(4) device is opened despite having a mux it will be detached from the mux.
It is also possible to inject events into a multiplexor from a user program.
For each mux device, /dev/wsmuxN there is a control device /dev/wsmuxctlN. The control device has a minor number 128 greater than the regu-
lar mux device. It can be used to control the mux even when it is open, e.g., by wsmuxctl(8).
/dev/wsmouse a.k.a. /dev/wsmux0
/dev/wskbd a.k.a. /dev/wsmux1

I have seen some misinformation regarding Unix file permissions. I will try to set the record straight. Take a look at this example of some output from ls:

I'm writing a short script to check if a continuous port is running on a server.

I installed NetBSD 6.1.2 amd64 and can't find the apm utility. Is it not in the base system?
Is it necessary to recompile the default amd64 kernel to use apm?
Or is there a new method for power management and suspend/resume? (2 Replies)

Usually when I on the evening go to bed I take some interesting book with me. I read it for a while to get me down to sleep. Probably most people seek information from the Nett by googleing but I am so oldfashioned I prefer a real book ;)
