modules in kernel


Is there some way to see what is the name of the module that I compile ? I mean, when I set for example when I set CONFIG_MOUSE_PS2=m in the .config file what will be the name of the module that will be compiled ?

Have a look at the help... in "make menuconfig" it's quite
plain ;) and it will tell you the module's name (usually)

If you want to you can have a look at
less /usr/src/<your_linux_src_tree)/Documentation/Configure.help
/<OPTION_NAME>


Cheers,
Tink
