Using a Mega Drive/Genesis Controller As Gamepad
I was wondering if it was possible to use the genesis controller as a game pad in linux, i read the driver documentation and it supports it when it is wired through the parrallel port (i think), but i was wondering if i could plug it straight into the serial port (as it is the same connecter).
I have tried to 'cat /dev/ttyS0', but it didnt work.(assuming the serial port is ttyS0).
dmesg does not give different results when i pull it out and put it back in agian.
I am running red hat 9 with kernal version 2.4.20-31.9.
ps i have had a joystick via a gameport and a gamepad via usb working fine.
on startup these lines are presentCode:
Serial driver version 5.05c (2001-07-08) with MANY_PORTS MULTIPORT SHARE_IRQ SERIAL_PCI ISAPNP enabled ttyS0 at 0x03f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A ttyS1 at 0x02f8 (irq = 3) is a 16550A
Joystick (Unknown) has 2 axes and 2 buttons. Driver version is 0.8.0. Testing ... (interrupt to exit)
