modules won't load

Hi hoping someone can explain whats wrong here and what I can do to fix it. Searched everywhere for info but can't find anything specific to my problem.

I'm using kernel

When I do modprobe joydev I get - FATAL: Module joydev not found

Joystick is usb sidewinder.

Not sure if USB is even working or not but here's the output of lsmod

Module Size Used by
eth1394 18312 0
ehci_hcd 26052 0
usbcore 103204 1 ehci_hcd
via_agp 7104 1
ohci1394 31620 0
nvidia 4819796 12
evdev 7296 0
ide_scsi 14020 0
agpgart 28200 2 via_agp

Pretty sure I compiled everything as modules when doing the kernel including my sidewinder. Is there anyway to fix this or do I need to go and recompile everything again.

Thanks in advance.

hopefully you still have the build directory lying around - check your config for:
I think CONFIG_INPUT_JOYDEV is optional, but safe to have it in there also.
Now when you recompile, it doesn't recompile the _whole_ thing, just what you changed.
Don't forget to make modules_install!
