Description Alistair Riddoch 2004-04-06 18:28:13 UTC
Description of problem:

The joydev.o module is missing from the kernel rpm package, even
though the config file has the following setting:

CONFIG_INPUT_JOYDEV=m

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

kernel-2.4.21-4.EL
kernel-2.4.21-9.0.1.EL

How reproducible:

Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attach a USB joystick device to the machine
  
Actual results:

/var/log/messages shows that a USB joystick has been connected and
is recognised as a HID device, but the reports the following:

"modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module char-major-13-0"

joydev.o is not present in the kernel rpm.

jstest /dev/js0 reports:

"jstest: No such device"

Expected results:

modprobe should be able to find and insert joydev.o

jstest should be able to query the status of the joystick.

Comment 1 Ernie Petrides 2004-04-06 21:39:43 UTC
Actually, the joydev.o driver is contained in the
kernel-unsupported-* RPM, which unfortunately means
that it is not supported in RHEL 3.
