I'm missing /dev/input. I have activated gpio-keys and event interface. I checked also the troubleshooting section of




It is even not present when I select static device configuration (while mdev active, so dynamic generation using evice_table.txt. I don't know where to look now. I cannot use event_test to check events now.

When I restore gpio-keys to be loaded on boot time, the event device is present (/dev/event0). Do I need hotplugging feature when gpio-keys build as module?

if you dont have hotplugging enabled, then devices will not be created on the fly.  it'll be up to you to take care of it.
