I use a stock-kernel (2.4.27-386)

/lib/modules/2.4.27-386/kernel/drivers/input/ does not contain a dir
called mouse, only 6 object-files: *.o (evdev, input, joydev, keybdev,
mousedev, uinput)

But if i don't rebuild the kernel, will it then help to reinstall the
kernel-image? That is, is the part 'sourced' under boot?
