A little ditty about XBOXDRV on Fedora 22

I recently stopped using the xpad kernel module in favor of the userspace xboxdrv driver for my gamepads under Fedora 22. Once switching the only issue at hand was starting xboxdev via the service command and starting it at boot time (so I didnt have to start it via the service command). A little Google-Fu (of stuff I should already know) resulted in the easy commands to get what I wanted.

To start xboxdrv via the service command (in case you don't want xboxdrv starting at boot time) type the following into a terminal

sudo service xboxdrv start

To start xboxdrv at boot time use the command

sudo systemctl enable xboxdrv.service

and that's all I did. It seems to work fine for my needs.
