I can't have more... Is it even possible? In kernel/misc.c, replace 'USHRT_MAX' by '(phys_clicks) -1' so that the line in question ends up to look like this: max_clicks = (phys_clicks) -1 - (EM_BASE >> CLICK_SHIFT); I don't know what got into me when I wrote the original code, it's obviously wrong. -- Kees J.
