Does jscalibrator work???

What kind of device is it? Actual joystick? Gamepad? Manufacturer?

You might have to use some of the command line tools to force the system to recognize the device. It's been so long since I had to do it, I've forgotten... but do a man page for lsmod and modprobe. You'll need to get familiar with those to get started...

i have test it on mdk9.2 (kernel 2.4.X) and there it works winthout any interventions

maybe the problem is in the new kernel2.6 input modules?!?

I have similar problems. Mandrake 10.1 and Gravis USB Gamepad Pro. Worked fine in previous Mandrake releases, but can't get it to work now.

Got it! Do this as root:

chmod 666 /dev/input/js0

Modify /etc/udev/permissions.d/00-udev.permissions to keep from having to do this on every boot with an extra line in the input section:

#-------------------------------
# input devices
# security => input: 644 => 600
# else anybody logged on could read my password directly from the event device
# associated with the keyboard...
input/*:root:root:0600
input/js*:root:root:0644
