I have a Gravis Blackhawk that isn't being recognized by any games.
It is, however, recognized at boot as recorded by dmesg.
The following modules are loaded at boot: joydev, grip, emu10k-gp,
gameport, and ns558. I'm running a Soundblaster Live! sound card.
There is a /dev/input/js0.
So, what am I missing? The following link gives some instructions
for getting joysticks to work in Debian but it's pretty old and says
that the instructions and utilities there are for the 2.4 kernel so
I'm unsure if all the instructions are valid:
I'm running a mixture of sid and Sarge with the 2.6.8-2-386 kernel,
but have only the packages required for Firefox 1.07 installed from sid.
