modprobe on startup


Was just wondering if anyone could tell me the steps I need to go through in order to have modrpobe scan for devices at startup. I have a Super SmartJoy Adapter (SNES Controller to USB) and need to have it do modprobe joydev, then cat /dev/js shortly after it performs the modprobe.

Hi!

Add a line to your /etc/modules with joydev. That should load the module on start up.

Regards!

yes, but if you had read, I need to have cat dev/js be ran at startup as well.

why do you have to do that? It should work fine only with the module. cat dev/js is for testing the input, not to enable it...
