Joystick in RH 7.3??


Hello,

I want to implement joystick in redhat 7.3. The kernel version is 2.4.18-26.7.x. The rpm available in RH 7.3 was joystick-1.2.15-11.i386.rpm. I tried configuring the joystick by one of the procedure followed in the page, http://www.computing.net/linux/wwwb...rum/17592.html. But instead of 'modprobe ns558' i used 'modprobe iforce' because the previous one gave me the error,
____________________________________________________
[root@modena root]# modprobe ns558
/lib/modules/2.4.18-18.7.x/kernel/drivers/char/joystick/ns558.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.18-18.7.x/kernel/drivers/char/joystick/ns558.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18-18.7.x/kernel/drivers/char/joystick/ns558.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.18-18.7.x/kernel/drivers/char/joystick/ns558.o: insmod ns558 failed
______________________________________________________

Also, the jstest /dev/st0 gives me the "jstest: No such device" error. I looked in the documentation FAQ, it said to insmod joystick.o or joy-*.o it gives me "No module by that name found"....

I use Joystick - Logitech Wingman strike Force 3D. I know that the force feedback is supported only in recent redhat kernel version but when i tried the same joystick in redhat 9 it works fine without force feedback... how to configure it in rh7.3? Where am i wrong? Any suggestions?

What happens if you try replacing /dev/st0 with /dev/tty0 (com1 port)?

correction

I am very sorry, that is not /dev/st0, it is /dev/js0. I think the url which i gave was not working properly. The correct url is this. http://www.computing.net/linux/wwwbo...rum/17592.html

thanks...

He is using Peanut Linux with kernel 2.4.19. Do you have a kernel of that version or more up to date?

well, i have already tried implementing the same procedure in RH 7.1 and 7.3. But in this kernel version 2.4.18-26.7.x of RH 7.3, i am facing such problems. Because the wildcat (the graphics card which i am using) drivers are supported only for this kernel version. So, i can't change the other kernel version too... hope there should be some solution, right?

This guy (Portchop) first of all got a normal joystick working. Do you have a normal (non-usb) joystick that you can get working? It looks as though once the drivers, etc are on there the usb port can see and use them.
