#1 Joystick works in GUI but not for xmame:

closed
None

No

For GUI controlled by joystick point it to /dev/ps0

when running GUI with joystick support:
joydev 1

when running GUI with joystick support:
joydev 0

when running the actual xmane app either with or w/out
GUI joystick support:
joydev 0

so not sure why this is.

in the controllers preferences there are two options
that allow me to point to /dev/js0 :
i386 or new i386 1.xx

others are:
none
FM town pad
PS2 linux
netbsd usb
x11
SDL

tried them all and none will give me a joydev 1.

xmms does actually work and also when starting xmame
from gxmame it states as part of the startup:
Message: xmame: I386 joystick interface initialization...
Message: xmame: OSD: Warning: No joysticks found
disabling joystick support

when I start gxmame with joystick support I get:
Message: Joystick THRUSTMASTER FireStorm Dual Power 2 found

so what do you reckon:
a) my system?
b) gxmame passing bad values to xmame
c) xmame
d) mybad on configuring joystick ?

    use /dev/js instead of /dev/js0 in the default games options
