If the gamepad is HID compliant... most if not all are... you just plug 
it into the computer, make sure it gets detected in dmesg, have joydev 
module loaded, and then cat /dev/input/jsX where X is 1-4.   If you 
press any buttons on the gamepad, you should be getting characters from 
the controller.  If you do, thats good and you'll have no problems. 
While having cat running, i usually check to make sure all my pad's 
buttons work too.
