actually you were wrong :-)
the kernel from http://sheeva.with-linux.com/sheeva/
(18.104.22.168) has the usbhid part compiled in,
and did NOT compile with hiddev support :-(
the problem is i could not compiled the module again because its alread in the kernel.
so i complied the whole kernel new , and now all works fine.
please someone when compiling the kernel for http://sheeva.with-linux.com/sheeva/
compile in as much as possible, otherwise its no use.
