on a whim i busted out dosbox and loaded up a few old vintage dos games for nostalgia. I got my joystick to work effortlessly. Then I got to wondering if I could hook my xbox controller up to the gentoo box running dosbox and use that for the old dosgames. Just need the flight control and maybe a few programmables as a bonus. Haven't tried this, but I wonder if anyone has done this?

I see games-util/xboxdrv in portage. Will have to give that a try.

JOYSTICK_XPAD is in kernel configs. Even more interesting....

CONFIG_JOYSTICK_XPAD=y in your kernel is all you need.

If you are using an xbox1 controller all you need appart from kernel support is a usb adapter.

If you are using a wired xbox 360 controller you just need to plug it and it will be detected, if you're using a wireless 360 controller you need an apdater, they can be found on ebay around 10usd or you can make your own with the rf board of a broken 360 (The small board with the power button).
