Default Thrustmaster RCS


in my old Macintosh days I had this very nice Thrustmaster flight
control system. It came with a joystick, a throttle control and pedals.
The joystick itself is ADB based and doesn't work whithout an adapter or
an old Mac.

However the pedals are equipped with a standard gameport connector and
it says it's compatible to Mac OS and Windows 95 ... so i am sure Linux
can handle it somehow.

I'd like to use it with an emu10k1 based Creative Soundblaster Live! to
controll the rudder of X-Plane simulated aircraft.

I've compiled the kernel (2.6.24-r4) modules for the joystick interface.
A USB based X52 works fine for X-Plane, but i have no live signs from
the pedals yet. I didn't find much about the pedals (Thrustmaster RCS)
on Google or anywhere else yet.

Any ideas how to make this old piece of equipment working?
