    Difference between evdev and mousedev?


    Hi guys..

    I have a hard time understanding the difference between the different input event drivers?

    To me it seems that the use of evdev and mousedev (for example) is precisely the same in my input device driver?

    I have found some examples where mousedev supposedly should be used, but in the driver-init method nothing is indicating this?

    Can someone please explain it to me?
