Description David Savinkoff 2006-05-29 00:58:51 EDT
Description of problem: 
  
/usr/include/linux/joystick.h is version 1.1 and should be version 1.3 This is
the evil that gives you grief in communicating with joydev. The solution is to
get a copy of joystick.h from the kernel-devel or kernel source rpm. 
  
/usr/src/kernels/2.6.16-1.2122_FC5-i686/include/linux/joystick.h 
or 
/usr/src/redhat/BUILD/kernel-2.6.16/vanilla/include/linux/joystick.h 
respectively 
  
I wonder how many other header files in /usr/include/linux are years out of
synch with the kernel. Please upgrade /usr/include/linux/joystick.h to version 1.3

Yes, the glibc-kernheaders in FC5 were horribly out of date. We can produce them
directly from the kernel now, and we're doing so in rawhide. Some day soon I'll
build up the courage to switch FC5 over to the new scheme. That involves nobody
filing new glibc-kernheaders in rawhide for a few weeks though :)
