Thanks go out to Gembird for the kind support, the libusb project, the USB snoopy team, Andreas Neuper and the other contributors.
This software is also included in the driver package from Gembird and available from the Gentoo/Portage tree (courtesy Wolfram Schlich).
You need libusb-0.15 or newer installed on your system (if you have an older version of libusb it MIGHT work, you'll have to tweak configure.in though and call scripts/bootstrap. Nevermind if this is just glibberish for you.
sis_pmctl is only available as sourcecode distribution. To install on your system run:
tar xzvf sispm_ctl-2.1.tar.gz
Note: The compiled application is named sispmctl since 2.0 without the underscore!
This installs the applicationsis pmctl in /usr/local/bin. If you want to install the application to a different directory,
call ./configure --prefix=/your/preferred/dir.
