How to get gamepad support in nestopia 1.46


I'm on slackware, so I'm running an ancient version of nestopia - 1.46 - that I got out of sbopkg. I have a Logitech F310 gamepad. I want to use it in nestopia. I grabbed xboxdrv from sbopkg and have it running. It is interpreting my inputs from the gamepad into the terminal as I enter them. However, the button mapping in nestopia is really really strange to me. Is there a way to change it? Or is there another way to get my gamepad to work in nestopia?

OK. I've found a ~/.nestopia/input.conf file. It looks like I can alter the button mapping there. I am having great difficulty in discovering the strings my gamepad sends.

Code:
root@caitlyn:~# xboxdrv
xboxdrv 0.8.5 - http://pingus.seul.org/~grumbel/xboxdrv/

This is from when I last started xboxdrv and pressed buttons on the D-Pad.
