Question xmame and two USB Joysticks


Hello,
i have two USB joysticks (same model), both are correctly recognized by Linux Mandrake 10.1, their device is correctly created in /dev/input as js0 and js1.
Unfortunately only one of them works with xmame, i read the xmame help (man xmame) but i cannot find a place where it says how to make two joysticks work with it.
Anyone knows?

Thank you,
Luca

*** Input device options ***
-joytype / -jt <int> Select type of joystick support to use:
0 No joystick
1 Standard joystick
-[no]analogstick / -[no]as Use Joystick as analog for analog controls
-joydevname / -jdev <string> Joystick device prefix (defaults to /dev/js)
-[no]ugcicoin Enable/disable UGCI(tm) Coin/Play support
-[no]steadykey / -[no]steady Enable steadykey support
-a2d_deadzone / -a2d <float> Minimal analog value for digital input
-ctrlr <string> Preconfigure for specified controller
-digital <string> Mark certain joysticks or axes as digital
(none|all|j<N>*|j<N>a<M>[,...])
-[no]usbpspad / -[no]pspad The joystick(s) are USB PS gamepads
-[no]rapidfire / -[no]rapidf Enable rapid-fire support for joysticks

Perhaps it's a xorg.conf problem...
Hope this help.
