comment How do you enable syslogd to accept incoming connections on Snow Leopard from remote loggers?
This was exactly what I was trying to do! Namely, get my 4 AEBSs to log to my Xserve running SLS. Much appreciated!

comment Magic Trackpad clicks and points, but doesn't scroll
Right. I don't know what the command-line-triggered uninstaller did, but it didn't uninstall the USBOverdrive.kext. Once it was deleted manually (dragged to trash) and I rebooted, all was well.

Success! It turned out that the USB Overdrive extension was NOT removed from /System/Library/Extensions. Deleting it and rebooting has enabled scrolling!

I found MicrosoftMouse.kext and removed it. I also looked at the list on the USB Overdrive support page, but found none of the ones listed. Rebooted, but the Magic Trackpad still fails to scroll.

As another data point, I did try downloading the Magic Trackpad and Multitouch Update from Apple's support site. The installer reports that I don't need to install it.

Pretty sure, yes. I used the command-line directions from here: superuser.com/questions/318983/…, which were to use this one-liner: /Applications/Utilities/Uninstall\ USB\ Overdrive.app/Contents/Resources/rmusbo
