I've recently been trying to get my old Sidewinder gamepads (2 gamepads daisy chained to a gameport on the sound card) working on a FC8 system. I have read all over and still cannot get the kernel to see the gamepads. My soundcard is a Creative AudioPCI (it was automatically detected when I installed FC8 and is using the snd_ens1371 and gameport modules). I've tried using modprobe with joydev, analog, and sidewinder modules. Nothing shows up in /var/log/messages, I'm assuming something should appear if it sees the gamepads. Also, no device file for /dev/input/js0 is created.
Can anybody shed some light on this? I am completely stumped.
Thank you !!
