Unloaded the kmod - did not change anything. But I will configure
devd not to load uhid.ko ever, just to be sure. You are implying Ithe uhid driver
should not be present, correct?

I will compile and try this one and report back.

I’m running my tests as root. The device is rw-rw——, root, uucp.

Kind regards
