I checked the joystick.txt file, but I still can't figure out how to go
about. Section 2.1 deals with the compilation of the driver package, but
since "yum info joystick" reports that it's installed I can skip this
section, right? When I do "cd /dev; ./MAKEDEV js" I only get symbolic
links (js0, js1, js2, js3) in /dev to non-existing files in /dev/input.
Since this is quite a common task, maybe it should be added to the
Fedora FAQ (www.fedorafaq.org). My Gravis GamePad is non-usb and uses
the standard game/midi port.
