  1. wine issue question

    Hello there,

    I have some troubles with Wine (I know, I must use Linux only etc...).

    When I want to use a usb joystick in a Windows game using Wine, it is
    only working if I start the system with the joystick already connected.

    If I connect the joystick after the kernel boot, it works in
    jscalibrator but not in Wine...

    Different versions of Wine (from 0.9.50 to 0.9.57) give the same results.

    I think udev, Hal, and may be rc.modules are involved in this problem
    but I dont no how and why.

    In both case the joystick appear as /dev/input/js0 with the same rights.

    Have anybody a way to solve the problem ?

    Many thanks.

    Philippe

    PS ; I use a Slack 12 with a home made kernel (2.6.21.7), Wine is 0.9.56
    version.

    You need a softlink from /dev/input/js0 to
    ~/.wine/dosdevices/what_ever_it_is_called_in_windos
    Had similar problem with a USB GPS.

    Just a thought.
