great to know, I've got to Logitech cordless controllers for my
original Xbox, which I love, my favorite game controllers by far, it
would be awesome to be able to use them in linux with MythGame. One
step closer to not having to boot my xbox =D
(and with the game play video's of the Wii from E3 I may have to
replace it alltogether...)
