PowerBook G4 trackpad and USB issues
I have installed Kubuntu 5.04 on a PowerBook G4. Neither the trackpad, nor a USB mouse appear to be working. After a bit of research I'm at the following:
Trackpad: it seems that Apple changed the trackpad supplier when they introduced a new version of powerbooks in January 2005, and it's not the "standard" trackpad that's supported by linux anymore. There's a driver out there - (google for "PowerBook/touchpad/driver") and I have not yet tried it out.
USB mouse: during boot I get the following message:
PCI: Probing PCI hardware
PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 0 of device 0001:10:18.0
PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 0 of device 0001:10:19.0
Apple USB OHCI 0001:10:18.0 disabled by firmware
Apple USB OHCI 0001:10:19.0 disabled by firmware
I've searched around for a while, but did not find what exactly "cannot allocate resource region" means, or what to do to fix it.
Also, with the Kubuntu installation the sound doesn't seem to work, but I'm not too worried about that, since it worked when I tried FC4 - I'll figure that one out once I have some kind of pointing device up and running.
So, if anybody can explain what precisely the PCI errors mean, or have any suggestions on how to fix them, please post!
