I am trying to interface the joystick with Verdex XL6P but when i connect the joystick the device doesnt show up in the input directory in dev.
Rather there is an event0 file pops up an with cat event0 its displaying data as its received from joysitck.
I gone through the documentation of gumstix openembedded but its no sufficient to describe what needs to be done if we want to enable some
i tried enabling the driver by modifying the menuconfig as decribed on ...

but every time I put the updated kernel in the gumstix as indicated on
http://www.gumstix.net/Software/view/Developer-how-to-s/Reflashing-using-a-serial-connection/111.html

when i boot the device it hangs after the soundcard driver....

waiting for reply
