Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

okay normally before playing ZSNES and whatnot i plug in my PSX->USB convertor (EMSUSB2 to be exact) and i bring up my terminal and do
$ su -
$ modprobe joydev
it thinks for awhile and ta-da! I can use my controller now and everything works fabulous. well I was lazy one day and just kinda left it in there. I switched over to windows and restarted once or something (i was changing somethings in my fstab, making sure it all worked) and now when i do modprobe joydev, like before, it doesn't think at all and my joystick module doesn't load... does anyone know wtf i did? im really confused and im missing out on some good StepMania and Super NES time ^_^
[root@localhost root]# mount | grep usb
usbdevfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbdevfs (rw)
and i wasn't too sure about my system log, but i did a google and i came up with a command called "dmesg" so i did that after i disc/reconnected my USB convertor and did modprobe joydev, ill only list the last part unless more is needed.
[bunch of stuff i see at boot]
usb.c: USB disconnect on device 00:02.3-3 address 4
hub.c: new USB device 00:02.3-3, assigned address 5
usb.c: USB device 5 (vend/prod 0xb9a/0x16a) is not claimed by any active driver.
seems as though there isn't anything about modprobe :-\
well im a bit stuck, the snippet from your dmesg means that hid is not recognising your device and i cant imagine why unless youve switched kernel. i would start googling for your device and see if anyone else has had similar problems.
wow... im really pissed off. i found out my little brother just switched it over from "PC" to "GAME" which made it not load properly.... i can't believe i didn't check that... sorry for having you look through all that stuff, at least my problem is fixed tho ^^;
