Joystick Problems, Possible Solution?


After I reinstalled Slackware, everything has been working perfectly except my joystick. Now I've been looking at previous threads and have made some of my own (that unfortunately didn't get anywhere) but I've decided to tackle the problem again, so, here I am. Okay, my problem is normally (on both Red Hat 9 and Slackware before re-installation) I just had to do modprobe joydev and my joystick worked perfectly (It's a PSX->USB convertor, absolutely fabulous btw). But now, that doesn't do anything. I was looking through dmesg and I saw this:

Code:
usb.c: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 2
usb-uhci.c: $Revision: 1.275 $ time 18:40:47 Sep  2 2003
usb-uhci.c: High bandwidth mode enabled
usb-uhci.c: v1.275:USB Universal Host Controller Interface driver
usb_control/bulk_msg: timeout
usb-ohci.c: unlink URB timeout
usb.c: USB device not accepting new address=2 (error=-110)
usb_control/bulk_msg: timeout
usb-ohci.c: unlink URB timeout
usb.c: USB device not accepting new address=3 (error=-110)
Now, this looks to me like my USB stuff isn't getting turned on. Which, would make sense since my joystick doesn't work (unfortunately I don't have any other USB devices that I can use to check this out). When looking through a very old thread I had, I noticed I had the module hid loaded. However, with this installation, it isn't already loaded! Could this contribute, or rather, is it the culprit to my problem? Or should I be looking somewhere else? I tried modprobe hid, and although successful, doesn't do anything for me unfortunately, joystick still doesn't work. Maybe hid has to be on before it tries to get the USB working? I'm really stuck and I need to finish Xenogears already :P

EDIT: I also used the bareacpi.i kernel instead of just bare.i as amos recommended it would fix my sound, which it did ^_^. That could also have some bearing on to my problem

Well, I found a solution to my problem, so I thought I would post it, in case someone down the line has a similar problem. Turns out I was right and the fact that I had acpi on was causing problems, albeit fixing another. It gave me the idea (through dmesg) to pass pci=noacpi to the kernel as a solution to a problem it was having I think. I decided to give it a whirl and voila! Problem solved, my joystick works again and ZSNES and StepMania are happy beings once more. If you have a similar problem and you need to go more indepth, just email me or something. I hope I can help someone sometime down the road.
