PS usb adapter.

I have a playstation 2 dual shock 2 controller and a usb adapter for it. I noticed in the kernel documentation, it tells you how to get a psx controller setup if you are using a parallel port, but there is nothing about drivers for a usb adapter. I am wondering if anyone knows of such a thing and where I could find it?

look for an entry for "adaptoid," there might be one (i know in the 2.6.x kernel configs, there is an option for xbox gamepad support and i think i have seen some other options for other gamepad support in the kernel elsewhere)

you may even want to plug in your device and run a hotplug script to see what modules need to be loaded
