I obtained the kernel source because I wanted to experiment with the driver for my touchpad. The kernel is currently building with the default parameters.
My question is this: I would like to make some changes to the touchpad driver, but I'm not sure how to test it without messing up my actual install. I don't want to replace the driver that's being used right now, I just want to test this one.
I don't believe the default build will create modules for the mouse driver-- should I build them as modules?
I'm a tad out of my depth and could use some help here. Thanks!
