What kind of pads? Is the input-joystick- extension loaded? Dmesg?

Hi Dikshant
I think curaga may be referring to  input-joystick-2.6.33.3-tinycore.tcz

Hi Dikshant
Check the output of dmesg to see if it provides any clues.
Code: [Select]
dmesg | less PageUp, PageDn, Home, End, up arrow, and down arrow will allow you to navigate the output.  Enter
q to quit.

what is dmesg?

Hi Dikshant
dmesg outputs the log file that the kernel prints messages to. Open a terminal and enter:
Code: [Select]
dmesg | less

..and you can also use [control]panel -> stats -> dmesg to see the entire output

It shows that zsnes has detected the joystick,but,it still fails to configure directional keys.Directional keys are working in windows.Is there any other emulator other than Zsnes and snes 9x to rum smc format games in tiny core linux?

Could you paste the relevant dmesg output for your gamepad here.

I've never used it, but I suspect zsnes has a configuration/setup to choose the applicable gamepad - is there one? Have you tried it?

Have you had a look at:

I have a card reader..
a) when it is connected via USB (in a multiusb connected to a USB PCI card) and I put the SD card inside the card reader, the card is not recognized
b) when the SD card is inside the card reader, and I connect this usb card reader into the multiusb connected to the USB PCI card, the card is recognized
Perhaps it is a similar issue? So, make b) (= dont plug the card only but the card already in the card reader).
Just an idea.. dont know..
