    replying to my own mail:

    i have forgotten to compile in IEEE 1284 support into the kernel. the db9 driver reports now 2 multisystem joystick ports correctly.

    it still does not work in vice, but i think this is the wrong mailinglist to discuss this problem.

    sorry for bothering you, best regards ...
