This file simply isn't there. The only "char" files I have are "serial.o" and
"softdog.o." Apart from these modules there's only block, cdrom, ide, net,
pnp, and sound modules.
All this is happening under VMware (altho I don't think it matters.)
The strange thing is that my gpm and also X mouse suddenly are working again,
after I rebooted. In /proc/devices it says "char devices: 10 misc," but this
is probably due to softdog watchdog support that I included in the kernel.
There isn't a module loaded with a name that suggests it supports mice. :-(
Remember that I configured mouse support NOT to be compiled into the kernel,
but to be compiled as a module. Also, I'm not exactly a newbie so it's
definitely not a user error.
The only explanation I've got is that the driver WAS included into the kernel
altho I instructed it to be compiled into a module. That would be a problem
with the kernel source (configure logic.)
To verify this I manually changed the two statements above to read:
I will have a go at it, and should this turn out to be the problem I will
report that here.
