[mythtv-users] Kernel src, ati_remote, 2.6.12 kernel

I've been searching the list, and the most informative thread I found was 
"Repeat problems with ati_remote in 2.6 kernel" found here: 

I have both of those issues, (the repeat, and the channel buttons).  I got 
to the point where I found the channel buttons were reporting codes above 
255 and xmodmap wouldn't display above 255.  So, the patch should work for 
me... BUT.

I run Fedora Core 4, with the apt kernel 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4smp and 
kernel-smp-devel-2.6.12-1.1398_FC4 symlinked to /usr/src/linux, both of 
which are the latest.  In the instructions for the patched ati_remote.c, 
it says to just copy it over the old one that is there.  However, in my 
directory tree, there is no ati_remote.c.  I'd rather not rebuild 
everything from scratch since I upgraded to FC4 to avoid doing that again. 
Do I need to run "make" or anything in the source tree to get that 
ati_remote.c file to appear?

Thanks for your help,
