Collie touchscreen now works

Thanks to this post ( http://bandwidthcrunch.snbadani.com/wordpress/index.php?m=200412 ), I realized there's some userland configuring that needs to be done, then figured out sources are available at http://cvs.arm.linux.org.uk/cgi/viewcvs.cgi/tslib/plugins/ and figured out I need to use "input" module (not collie or ucb1x00). Input is now so noisy it is unusable, but at least I got something. Strange thing is that if I touch screen lightly, pointer goes top-left...

SUSE mountains in Spindleruv Mlyn were great. Seth now probably thinks we are crazy Czech people (and he is probably right). I managed to control snowboard enough to go on the red slope, and still feel ok. Black slope was somewhat different story, but going down the slope or your back works, too...

On previous weekend I attended opensolaris user group meeting (ate their pizza and made fun of Sparc cpus :-) -- they refused to run Niagara from li-ion cell from my sharp zaurus for some reason); there are some pictures at end of series at http://atrey.karlin.mff.cuni.cz/~pavel/picture/square1 . Qiq deinstalling solaris using screwdriver is my favourite.
