What does a USB joystick show up as?


I'm using SUSE 10, and am trying to get my joystick working. SuSE's finding it, according to the following output:

shpchp: Standard Hot Plug PCI Controller Driver version: 0.4
hw_random: RNG not detected
usb 3-2: new low speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
usb 3-2: new device found, idVendor=124b, idProduct=4d01
usb 3-2: new device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
usb 3-2: Product: AIRFLO
usb 3-2: Manufacturer: Nyko
usb 3-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
usbcore: registered new driver hiddev
device-mapper: 4.5.0-ioctl (2005-10-04) initialised: dm-devel@redhat.com
dm-netlink version 0.0.2 loaded
input: Nyko AIRFLO as /class/input/input4
input: USB HID v1.10 Gamepad [Nyko AIRFLO] on usb-0000:00:1d.2-2
usbcore: registered new driver usbhid
drivers/usb/input/hid-core.c: v2.6:USB HID core driver
loop: loaded (max 8 devices)

I've heard it would be something like /dev/js0, which is not participating on my system. What would a USB joystick typically show up as in my device listing?

Have you looked under /dev/input? The kernel seems to be detecting it fine, so the device should be getting created.

Found it! It seems to be under event4, though.

I still can't get my program (I'm using ePSXe with a gamepad plugin) to listen to it.

I've had it working for a short time playing Catechumen (www.n-lightning.com) under WINe, but that's about it. No consistency here either, as it now does not work under this game. Still investigating...
