/dev/kbd is the raw keyboard device. I'm not sure I want to know why you want to know this, though. :)

My linux snes emulator needs the device name in order to use it. Ya, it sucks.

Hmm, that's strange. It seems that /dev/kbd does not exist. I looked through the entire directory. Is there any reason it might be called something different?

Hmm, I dunno, I just googled for it and couldn't test it at work. :) Seems it doesn't exist on my box either. Maybe there is something useful in /dev/input/, though...
