Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 120197
joydev.o is missing from kernel rpm

Description of problem:
The joydev.o module is missing from the kernel rpm package, even
though the config file has the following setting:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attach a USB joystick device to the machine
/var/log/messages shows that a USB joystick has been connected and
is recognised as a HID device, but the reports the following:
"modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module char-major-13-0"
joydev.o is not present in the kernel rpm.
jstest /dev/js0 reports:
"jstest: No such device"
modprobe should be able to find and insert joydev.o
jstest should be able to query the status of the joystick.
Actually, the joydev.o driver is contained in the
kernel-unsupported-* RPM, which unfortunately means
that it is not supported in RHEL 3.
