HOWTO: inpututils
Description: Utilities for the Linux input drivers
Click here for ChangeLog
NOTE: I use GNU tar >= 1.13.25 so it's -j for .tar.bz2 files,
it's safe to assume that make, gcc, binutils, fileutils/coreutils, gawk, sed, and grep are prerequisites for almost everything

# inpututils
# ==========
# I only need the jscal and jstest utilities to test my joystick, so I only
# build those below.

# If you want to browse the CVS repository:

mkdir -p -m 0700 src
cd src
test -d inpututils && ( cd inpututils/ruby ; cvs update )
test ! -d inpututils &&
 ( mkdir inpututils
   cd inpututils
   # If it asks for a password, hit enter
   cvs login
   cvs -z3 \
    co -P ruby )
cd inpututils/ruby/utils
make clean
make jscal
make jstest
su -c "install -s jscal jstest /usr/local/bin/"
echo "inpututils was installed from CVS under ~/src/inpututils" > \
chmod 700 ~/installed/inpututils.README
