I merged the "pcigame" driver of the vanilla linux kernel into the aureal driver, and it worked fine for me. I don't know if the Aureal Advantage could work (not enabled ... missing data).
Where can i upload it ?
The changes to the original driver are very small.
I'll try to make it avaiable to
... in a few minutes.
The next thing i would like to do is to add a /dev/sequencer device for the MIDI output (the MPU 401 UART), because many MIDI sequencers i tried don't work with the barebones /dev/midi device.
This is my very first Linux kernel contribution. I hope you don't have to puke when reading the source :-)
I compiled the driver fine... and I can load it via 'insmod au8830', but not 'modprobe au8830'. After modprobe, the system just sorta sits there... I can type, but it doesn't return a prompt. I can return to the prompt, but only after a CTRL-C.
However, jstest /dev/js0 still reports "no such device." I do have the sidewinder module loaded.
If I 'rmmod au8830' and 'insmod pcigame' (I did build the pcigame module, then with it compiled into the kernel, and then without it completely), I can use the joystick... I have gotten it working. Once I load au8830, I can't load pcigame, and I get the 'no such device' error.
I'm running the 2.4.19 kernel, with a Diamond MX300 (AU8830), and a Microsoft Sidewinder Forcefeedback Pro Version 1 (sidewinder)
Simple fix. Don't load the pcigame module... load the ns558 module instead... the generic gameport.
