XPAD xbox controller driver help

I was wondering if anyone knows if the triggers on the controller are recognized by the driver in kernel 2.6.1, driver version .05 I believe, because i cant get them to work, possibly because they are analog?

temp solution

I have found a temporary solution to the problem with the triggers on the xbox gamepad under linux 2.6. This is kind of bootleg but it works good enugh for me. The newer version of QjoyPad a button to key prog allows for throttling which fixes the problem with the triggers acting like they are pressed when they are not.

I hope this helps someone
