Fedora Games Spin - Joystick / Gamepad support
 
Hi,

I downloaded and started the Fedora Games Spin, but I can not get my
gamepad to work.

I understand that the joystick support was recently moved to the
kernel-modules-extra RPM, and I think that the Games Spin does not contain
this.
(see here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=815168 )

Is there some way the kernel-modules-extra package can be added to the
Fedora Games Spin, and that the boot does a 'modprobe joydev' ?

FYI: Under a normal Fedora 17 installation the gamepad works fine after a
'modprobe joydev', so it's not a hardware problem. ;)

kind regards,

Egon

I can look at doing this. I can add kernel-modules-extra. I don't know if
I need to worry about PAE, but I don't think we use PAE for live
images.


I have figured out which file should get tweaked to load the module. I
looked into it a while back and was looking at doing a package to add it.
That didn't happen, but I can do that in post.

This is being tracked in bug 841938.
