Hello Everyone,

I just wanted to ask if anyone here has successfully made a Sony Vaio Jogdial work with VL.

I have the jogdial on my sony laptop and it currently doesn't do anything. If anyone know if there is something I can do so that it can be used for anything, please let me know.

Sincerely,

Byte Monkey

Thanks but the links to the application on that page do not work. They point to some French "file missing page."

In order to automatically load the sonypi module on use, you can put those
lines in your /etc/modprobe.conf file:

   alias char-major-10-250 sonypi
   options sonypi minor=250

This supposes the use of minor 250 for the sonypi device:

   # mknod /dev/sonypi c 10 250

you will also need this: http://sjog.sourceforge.net/
