I became somewhat bothered with trying to do Oolite 1.80 under Linux since I was having issues with xboxdrv. So I eased into the dark side and fired up Windows 7 and in the process of pulling down every expansion that I can find. Meantime, I was google and found that someone had properly configured the F310, but it might have been lost way back when since every time I try to pull up the message, there seems to be so issue with it coming up.

So if someone is using the F310 and has saved a profile, would you be so kind as to share it. I have never seemed to be able to properly configure the gamepads.

Thanks!

Often (but not always), when I come across something on the 'net that's been "lost" for whatever reason, I'm able to find it at the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine. Sometimes I've even been able to download files, drivers, etc, that are no longer available anywhere else. If a site I'm trying to open has been closed down or is otherwise unavailable, the Wayback Machine is always my next stop. I've even added it to my browser's search engine list to make it even faster to access.

With almost 500 billion webpages archived, there's a reasonable chance you'll find your missing message there.

It's an excellent service. I was able to get my hands on the original Fighter HUD Mk I oxp through it when it was gone from the wiki.

Thanks for the suggestion... I have decided to head back to linux and I am going to do whatever I need to in order to get xboxdrv working on my machine. I fired up Windoze and continued to have continied problems. How a quad i7 with 8G can have some many issues, I do not know, but it was enough for me to go back to my environment and solve the issue.
