    Help gettinga Gravis Gamepad to work


    I'm trying to get my Gave Gamepad Pro (Gamport version) to install on Mandrake 10.1. The Gameport is off of a Sound Blaster Live Value!, but I can't figure out how to install it. I've been using linux for 2 weeks now, and this is the only thing from windows I haven't gotten to work, the soundblaster works but I'm not sure about the gameport
    One suggestion was to run "modprobe gameport" and "modprobe grip", but I have very little idea what that does. Has anybody installed a gamepad before, or know how to go about it? Thanks

    Try to issue the commands:

    modprobe joydev
    modprobe analog
    modprobe ns558

    and perhaps

    ln -s /dev/input/js0 /dev/js0

    It worked for me. Add the commands to /etc/rc.local to make it permanent.
