    USB Gamepad


    I would like to use my USB gamepad with snes9x. When I run it normally, the device file it tries to use is /dev/js0, which doesn't work ("No such device"). What device file deals with USB gamepads? I'm on Linux 2.6.3 by the way.

    You'll want to 'modprobe joydev' to get your USB joystick to work. If you don't have joydev, then it's located in the Character Devices section in your kernel config.
