I've another question. I could finally install my joypad correctly and works great, but there's something annoying me a little. All the time I've to use it, I've to first open a terminal, then log in as root and load the modules (in the case, modprobe joydev). Is there anyway to make it work right away when I start gnome?
Yes. It is the wonder of modules.conf in /etc However, if you cannot find info for your device there, then you could simply place that (modprobe joydev) in a startup script:
rc.local (possibly in /etc or /etc/rc.d)
And have it modprobed during bootup.
well you can always write something like a changelog. I recommend that anyways. I did it with the new setup of the servers ... okay it's huge > 80 KB but it was well worth the work i think (although I know what I did) :-)
Definitely a good idea. You will have a record of what you need to get your box back up quickly, also for setting up multiple boxes that will save you tons of time and from having to look back and forth from box to box.
