write(3, "\r", 1)                       = 1
select(4, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 1000000}) = 1 (in [3], left {0, 995000})
read(3, "?", 1)                         = 1
select(4, [3], NULL, NULL, {0, 1000000}) = 1 (in [3], left {1, 0})

Comment 1 Ngo Than 2006-01-16 07:03:33 EST
For debugging, couuld you please attach your /etc/modprobe.conf and 
the output of "dmesg | grep -i Joystick"

it looks like a problem in the driver. Thanks

No response from reporter to request for info.
Also, FC3 is the responsibility of Fedora Legacy.
If the reporter can offer the needed information and this still
occurs in FC4 or FC5, please reopen.
