Re: Sun keyboard on i386?

I wrote various stuff about using a Sun type-3 keyboard on a peecee
serial port, sent here because I was trying to use the Sun keyboard
driver in the kernel.

Turns out it's actually fairly simple and easy to do this in the X
server instead.  With just one evening's hacking on it, I have it
almost totally working; the only thing that doesn't work right is
autorepeat, and that (a) will probably be easy to fix once I figure out
what needs fixing and (b) should be taken elselist to be discussed.

So, while I do think it would be good to be able to attach kbd (or ms)
at com even on completely Sun-unrelated ports, it is of little
practical significance to me now.
