comment Touchpad not detected
That's quite incredible. Can anyone with the laptop confirm that this works and makes the touchpad usable?

comment How does coreutil's date manage to get such weird results?
Thanks for finding this out! Do you know any shorter way to obtain the number of seconds of a duration like "2 days" with date? (e.g., an abbreviation for the epoch)

P.T.: I know about screen, but this is to run multiple occurrences of the program from a shell script for testing purposes, so using screen is a bit overkill.

w00t: Did you mean "<&-"? Indeed, it makes the program terminate. Adding a switch is not a very elegant solution, because it feels like there should be a sensible way to reach the desired behavior by giving the adequate input to the program.

From strace tail -f /dev/null it seems that tail uses inotify and that wakeups occur in silly cases like sudo touch /dev/null. It's sad that there seems to be no better solution... I wonder which would be the right syscall to use to implement a better solution.
