How to setup gamepad?

I have logitech thunderpad -gamepad which connects through gameport. Could someone help me to install it properly? I'm currently using gentoo but there shouldn't be big differences in setup process between other distros. Thanks

I don't know the exact answer to this, but if you check the file


in your kernel source you see the pad is supposed to work with the 'adi' module. You could try 'modprobe adi' and see what happens. But then I guess whatever application you want to use it with would have to know how to access it.

Thanks for the help. I just had to turn on game port and ADI support from kernel and make some configuring. It's working now.
