    I’m making a project that currently has 5 controllers connected, and I need them in the correct order on boot up.
    Here’s what I have

    2 Xbox 360 wireless, using the xboxdrv.
    2 Atari DB9 Joysticks using the db9_gpio_rpi.
    1 custom joytick showing as a standard hid device.

    Currently I have been using this in my rc.local to init the xbox controllers and then the db9 ones.

    xboxdrv –daemon –wid 0 –led 2 –deadzone 4000 –silent –trigger-as-button –next-controller –wid 1 –led 3 –deadzone 4000 –silent –trigger-as-button –dbus disabled –detach-kernel-driver &
    sleep 1
    modprobe db9_gpio_rpi map=1,1

    But adding in the new joystick that need no driver make is always show as /dev/input/js0. Any suggestions on how to make it always js4?
