can you run ffcstress against the /dev/input/event# device? also, you'll need to modify the permissions on the device, making it owned by the games group should be all you need. that way users can use the wheel with the ffb enabled.

my script, in case you're not using the udev rule above:

Code:
# cat dowheel
#!/bin/bash

cd usbtool-0.1
python2.4 usbtool -l | grep G25

echo turning on wheel functions
python2.4 usbtool g25-set-extended-mode
sleep 3

python2.4 usbtool -l | grep G25

echo turning on 900 degrees
python2.4 usbtool g25-set-range-wheel-900
sleep 3

python2.4 usbtool -l | grep g25

echo redetecting js0
ls -l /dev/input/js0
rmmod joydev && rmmod usbhid && modprobe usbhid
sleep 1
ls -l /dev/input/js0
sleep 2

echo fixing event6 permissions
ls -l /dev/input/event6
chgrp games /dev/input/event6
chmod g+rw /dev/input/event6
ls -l /dev/input/event6

echo done

output looks like this:

Code:
# ./dowheel
046d:c299:0 Device G25 (normal mode) found!

turning on wheel functions
alt setting 0
046d:c299:0 Device G25 (extended mode) found!

turning on 900 degrees
alt setting 0

redetecting js0
ls: cannot access /dev/input/js0: No such file or directory
crw-r--r-- 1 root root 13, 0 Oct 19 05:59 /dev/input/js0

fixing event6 permissions
crw-r----- 1 root root 13, 70 Oct 19 05:59 /dev/input/event6
crw-rw---- 1 root games 13, 70 Oct 19 05:59 /dev/input/event6

done
