Re: usb gamepad

this means you're loading the wrong joystick module. i'm guessing you have the analog module loaded. there's probably a more specific module you could use.

Read the Arch Joystick Wiki and the kernel's joystick documentation

Unfortunately there's nothing specific about quickshot in there. I haven't heard of it, but frankly that doesn't mean too much smile try having a long search through google to find out what module might work, and play around. loading modules doesn't hurt your computer heh

I had the same problem with my Logitech ThunderPad Digital, and I found out that I actually need to load the adi module instead of analog to get all 8 buttons working.

Re: usb gamepad

Have you tried this:

modprobe analog analog.map=gamepad8

It should be the right mapping for an 8-button 2-axis gamepad.
Hope it helps...

Re: usb gamepad

it gives me this error:

FATAL: Error inserting analog (/lib/modules/2.6.11.10-ARCH/kernel/drivers/input/joystick/analog.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter

ive read that modprobe analog map=gamepad8 works, but its the same

maybe i'm just going to buy a new gamepad, one thats supported

thanks anyway
