     Sorry for the cross-post, but  I was unsure of the correct target list...
     Is anyone out there successfully using a Logitech Wingman Attach joystick
with FreeBSD? This joystick is a 15 pin game port joystick plugged into my
SoundBlaster MP3+.
     I got xmame to compile today and went out and bought this thing. It shows
up in dmesg as:

joy0 at port 0x201 on isa0

after "/dev/MAKEDEV joy*" and "ln -s joy0 joy" I can even get xmame to see it

xmame -joytype 7 pacman

the output shows:

SDL: joystick interface initialization...
SDL: 1 joysticks founds.
SDL: The names of the joysticks :  /dev/joy0
SDL:  the joystick init FAIL!!
OSD: Info: Joystick 0, -1 axis, -1 buttons

But the joystick doesn't work.
I tried testing the joystick with /usr/X11R6/bin/joycal /dev/joy, but it just
prompts with:

Center the joystick, then press a button

and no response when I actually press a button.

Is there another way to test or calibrate joysticks in FreeBSD?
Out of ideas. Any help much appreciated.
