Just a thing to point out before your try out that config - it didn't help
me. I also tried to look at what knoppix (3.7) finds and I got just
exactly the same things you did. I even tried to just past that section
into my config, but that didn't help.

I guess if someone would know how to use the evdev-protocol it would be
really great! I mean - if they put a how-to on linux-gamers it has to
works somehow...
