Recently, I bought a super-old generic gamepad at a tag-sale for $1. I hooked it up to my linux-box,
I can't help but laugh at this, eventually it worked when I attempted to reconfigure the gamepad from within DOS, but it still was partially antagonizing.
Hopefully with a couple of kernel upgrades and some tinkering, I can get the good old
Update: I ended up dishing out the cash and buying a USB gamepad. Mandrake 9.2 detects it, but the kernel doesn't making a proper device file for it. It is now in my best interests to just recompile my kernel and start from scratch. This should be difficult for me, considering that I'm only a linux hobbyist and a complete neophyte with kernel upgrades and such. Oh well, there isn't anything incredibly important on my linux partition that I don't have a back up of.
