Description Nicholas Miell 2006-04-15 02:41:59 EDT
Right now, when a USB joystick (and presumably all other types of joystick input
devices) is attached, the joydev module isn't loaded. This causes problems
because everything that uses joysticks on Linux uses the old interface (which
joydev provides).

HAL is able to figure out that it's a joystick, so it should be possible for
udev to do the same and load joydev automatically.
