Different gamepads same configuration

I have two different gamepads with different layout but when i connect them to my computer they get the same configuration which results in one of them not working porperly. With not working properly i mean that not all button pushes are registered.

Any clues on what to do would be most appreciated



System specs
Distribution: Fedora Core 3
Kernel: 2.6.13
Joy1 Rockfire USB StarTraveler
Joy2 Rockfire USB SmartTraveler

dmesg output:
Sep 17 16:02:27 localhost kernel: usb 2-2: new low speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4
Sep 17 16:02:28 localhost hal.hotplug[12189]: DEVPATH is not set
