Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 830435
Joystick not working anymore and others
Last modified: 2013-03-04 15:01:52 EST
Description of problem:
I'm not sure if this belongs here, but anyway...
After upgrading from F16 to F17 it is not possible anymore to play torcs with a joystick, only keyboard works (and probably mouse).
The joystick is an USB Logitech Logitech Dual Action.
After hot-plug "dmesg" shows:
[21708.139404] usb 1-3.1: new low-speed USB device number 12 using ehci_hcd
[21708.244037] usb 1-3.1: New USB device found, idVendor=046d, idProduct=c216
[21708.244047] usb 1-3.1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
[21708.244054] usb 1-3.1: Product: Logitech Dual Action
[21708.244060] usb 1-3.1: Manufacturer: Logitech
After starting torcs:
[21718.251354] generic-usb 0003:046D:C216.0005: usb_submit_urb(ctrl) failed: -1
[21718.251380] generic-usb 0003:046D:C216.0005: timeout initializing reports

Which may or may not be OK.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Start torcs from command line (torcs-wrapper)
Go to the player configuration menu and try to change the controls, assigning the joystick buttons, for example. Alternatively, if already configured (like my case), try to start a race.
It is not possible to steer the car using the joystick.
The joystick should work as it did before.
A couple of comments.
I was positively surprised to find new tracks, this is really nice.
I was a bit less positively surprise to *not* find the Formula One cars anymore... Are they missing or it is another problem?
Just tested something...
I tried GL-117, this works with the joystick.
it seems something changed, not GL-117 is not working too.
I installed the joystick tool and this has problems as well.
I guess there are two possibilities, either a (sudden) hardware failure or a kernel problem.
I guess you can close this bug report (apart from the question about the F1 cars), I'll open a new one for the kernel component.
it seems I solved both issues.
The joystick seems to depend on "kernel-modules-extra" package, once installed, everything was working fine.
The F1 car I found under different name...
I guess you can close this bug.
since the issue is solved, I close this one.
