Re: Need help for joystick

I have a sidewinder gamepad. If I do...

modprobe joydev
modprobe sidewinder

it works fine!

Re: Need help for joystick

I also have a sidewinder game pad. and a thrustmaster firestorm.

Neither one works no matter what combination of modprobing or entering into the modules section of rc.conf
Tried these:

joydev
sidewinder

joydev
tmdc

joydev
analog

The best I can get it to work is when I do

cat /dev/input/js0

, it outputs a bunch of garbage on the screen.  If I press the buttons, it gives me more garbage.   Is it supposed to output garbage?  I don't know, I've never used a joystick w/Linux, much less, the "cat" command.  I do know that Enemy Territory will not recognize either one by running it from the commandline and checking the output: 

Joystick not active.

It does spit out garbage using the cat command.  What that tells you is that the gamepade is actually working and sending signals.
ET may be looking for the js0 device somewhere else in the /dev tree. If it's not there already, try symlinking /dev/input/js0 to /dev/js0 .
