So, I'm trying to get xboxdrv working, and it runs, and it reports pad inputs in it's terminal, but it doesn't create the /dev/input/js* and /dev/input/event* it says that it should.

I have checked that uinput is loaded, and /dev/uinput exists.

What should I be doing to understand how to fix this?

Solved.

Has to be run as root.

Userspace driver doesn't mean "can run as an ordinary user", it means "doesn't need to be run as a kernal module"
