Hi!

Create file
/etc/hal/fdi/policy/no-3dconnexion-trackpoint.fdi
and put the following lines into this file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<deviceinfo version="0.2">
        <device>
                <match key="info.product" contains="3Dconnexion">
                        <remove key="input.x11_driver"/>
                </match>
        </device>
</deviceinfo>

After xorg restart it stop treat SpacePilot as a TrackPoint, however, I
don't known is it sufficient to get work SpaceNavigator with Second
Life.

Kwant!
