So I am posting this to broaden Mike's appeal.  The binaries right now
are huge, so any help putting shared libraries together would be grealy

BTW, the machine is a 486DX266 with 16M RAM.

1. Knobs and buttons for XF86, BRL-CAD 5.0 Beta

Hello group!

I'm experimenting with BRL-CAD 5.0 Beta which has the capability to use
knobs, buttons, and joystick control. Currently none of these work with
the Linux version.

Is there a way to make a knob and button device and use it as an X input
