Used the 2nd patch to create an updated joystick package for Kanotix now. Works fine. Thank you!
I can update it when it does not work for others. You could add a description too. Currently it is called like you, look:
I do not fill out debian bug reports, i contact dev usually directly if needed. The debian response time is too slow for me, therefore i put all needed updates directly in my repository, also my new system is based on lenny, hard to get updates in there...
Remapping axes (-u) will move their calibration settings with them.
Printing current mappings might sometimes encounter problems while getting button configuration. In this case buttons number is set to 0 and the faulty reading is ignored. Remapping function support this workaround.
This is the best thing I can write right now.

I recently bought Caster, and it's pretty nice- runs well on my Intel 945 chip except for some brutal slowdowns- which make at least The Beaten Path unfinishable for me.
I'm surprised no one's mentioned the cool terrain-deforming capabilities- it reminds me of the feature from Red Faction.
There's a (bug?) that can get you stuck on Treacherous Tower if you don't have a high enough (4+ I believe) super jump. If you jump down to the bottom to collect the energy sphere, it can end up being too steep to get back up.
Other than that, it's a fine game that runs surprisingly well.
Well wine does not work on intel i guess, but if you have got Win, then dl you could try the Win demo + replace the data dir by the Linux one. It works the other way too, just some gfx gliches, i guess the Linux engine is older. Using nvidia gfx wine works fine.
I'll check into that. Might need to have a bit of the terrain adjusted for people. He's working on Chapter 2 right now, so if there's an issue there, he can probably tune it a bit better.There's a (bug?) that can get you stuck on Treacherous Tower if you don't have a high enough (4+ I believe) super jump.

might want to look at threading it aswell. All things said, on my Q6600 it rapes CPU4 100%. I also get slowdowns quite frequently.
