Forgot to mention: the line that is "input-device kbd" I'm almost sure
is correct... it's standard across (I think) all of the Mac PPC OF
models, at least.
The other line, that says "output-device /chaos/control" came from this
If that doesn't work or something (for example, if you're running off
another video card), there's some OF voodoo (at least, I couldn't find
any docs on it and had to ask somebody "in the know") that you can do to
try and figure out what your video card is. I still have some of that
info on that lying around; I can look it up for you if ya need.
