I am trying to get xboxdrv up and running with an xbox 1 controller. I'm a little confused about what modules I want enabled. Here is the error message
I get when I start the daemon.

Code:

 * Starting xboxdrv ...[ERROR] XboxdrvDaemon::run(): fatal exception:
Error: No stuitable uinput device found, tried:

  /dev/input/uinput: No such file or directory
  /dev/uinput: No such file or directory
  /dev/misc/uinput: No such file or directory

Troubleshooting:
  * make sure uinput kernel module is loaded
  * make sure joydev kernel module is loaded
  * make sure you have permissions to access the uinput device
  * start the driver with ./xboxdrv -v --no-uinput to see if the driver itself works


I'm pretty sure I want xpad disabled so there is no interferance. It appears that there is more than one option for modules which can be enabled. Any suggestions on which is best?

Well, I answered my own question. Sort of, but now I have another.

I enabled both of the modules listed below and it starts without incedent. however I get these messages in dmesg
Code:

[  282.269978] usb 2-1.2.1: Product: XBOX Gamepad
[  410.392360] input: Xbox Gamepad (userspace driver) as /devices/virtual/input/input17
[  410.415005] xboxdrv[9411]: segfault at 200 ip 00007fea79c209e7 sp 00007fff6cb46480 error 4 in libusb-1.0.so.0.1.0[7fea79c17000+16000]
[32367.753655] input: Xbox Gamepad (userspace driver) as /devices/virtual/input/input18
[32367.776796] xboxdrv[10635]: segfault at 200 ip 00007f54d2b989e7 sp 00007fffb2eaf5e0 error 4 in libusb-1.0.so.0.1.0[7f54d2b8f000+16000]


I'm not sure if this vould be bart of the problem but that virtual device "input17", doesn't appear to exist on my system.
or could this be an issue with libusb?

Hi,

did you eventually find a solution? I sort of have the same problem using a wireless Xbox360 Controller. xboxdrv is happy as long as I detach it from the kernel, I can see the controller events arrive, they show up on the debug-output. However when I launch it without a detach-option I get a segfault like you. Dmesg tells me its almost identical:

Code:

[  569.575325] xboxdrv[2466]: segfault at 144 ip b74cb99e sp bfc2de30 error 4 in libusb-1.0.so.0.1.0[b74c3000+16000]

Try running xboxdrv as root.

Actually I already did run xboxdrv as root. However I eventually made it work. The reason for the segfault was, my kernel did not support uinput - quite hidden in:
Code:

Device Drivers > Input device support > Miscellaneous devices > User level driver support


But thanks you anyways!

Regards, Keen
