Razer Mice + Linux Update

As it has been almost a month since any Razer updates have been passed along, here are a few additional notes. Phoronix still has yet to hear back from Razer Inc on whether they plan to port their drivers to Linux, release specifications, or do anything else to help the Linux community. Phoronix still plans on assisting Linux-Gamers and their Lomoco project. While the project is focused on Logitech mice, Andreas Schneider had mentioned Razer mice support could be appended into the next major version (v2.0). Meanwhile, we are also working on getting support for the Razer Diamondback and Krait into the SourceForge RazerTool project -- at this point it only supports the Copperhead. After updating one of our Copperhead's to firmware version 6.17i, RazerTool had worked flawlessly under Fedora Core 5. Previously, there were problems due to firmware version 6.13. Once we have any additional Razer + Linux details to pass along, we will do so.
