Meanwhile I have solved my problem myself.
Except dozends of non-related emails from this mailing-list, I got
no responce after being forced to subscribe to be able to post to it.
To be frank, you should document this nasty condition on
http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/xorg inplace of
"To post a message to all the list members ..." .
Ok, now from the annoying introduction to the technical solution:
1) spaceorb input modul on x86-64 architecture is broken in X11-7.1.1.
Option "Name" "OEM Spaceball 3003" in my XConfig-InputSection
N: Name="OEM SpaceBall 3003"
opened my eyes for this typo-error in the "Name" Option.
And after correcting this, the X11-evdev-modul recognized my spaceball.
Furthermore applying Roland Arsenaultss evdev-spaceball-patch for SpaceTraveler
to my evdev-version 1.1.2 sensefully, let me finally get a working
x11-driver for my Spaceball 3003 FLX when using glut.
Thanks again to Roland for this usable patch! I emailed Roland and the
maintainer of evdev yesterday personally and I will soon desubcribed from this
list, expecting no more comments (or even help).
