Joystick driver v2.0.0

This is the next generation Linux joystick driver. It's based on the input drivers, but doesn't contain all of the input driver changes, just those needed so support all the joysticks.

It supports all joysticks the original joystick driver did (see Supported Hardware) and a couple more, all bugs I knew of in the 1.2.15 driver are fixed and namely the detection of gameports was enhanced significantly.

The v2.0 driver is currently for 2.4 kernels only, but if enough people will need it, I can back port it to v2.2 kernels. There is no patch for the 2.4 kernels anymore, the driver is included in the official Linus's kernels now.

Send any questions, comments, bug reports to: Vojtech Pavlik <>
