Description Hernan Petitti 2004-12-01 07:59:10 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.3)

Description of problem:
X freezes (screen and no keyboard) when I only use touchpad (no usb
mouse attached). Even when I change some modules such as synaptics or
mouse in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
But touchpad works fine if a usb mouse is connected.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot in runlevel 3 (it hangs in runlevel 5 with gdm too)
2. xinit or startx
3. move the mouse pointer and/or press some keys and wait a few
seconds to see it.

Actual Results:  Screen freezes, keyboard not respond and touchpad
still working.

Expected Results:  Still using touchpad without crashes.

Additional info:

HP pavilion ze5165.
If a usb mouse is connected, touchpad works fine (usb mouse too) and X
no crashes.
With Fedora Core 2 works perfect using "psmouse" module in
/etc/X11/XF86Config and "psmouse.proto=imps" in grub.conf

Reassigning to "synaptics" component.
Comment 2 Paul Nasrat 2005-02-01 10:45:26 EST
Please attach your Xorg.conf and the X logfile as seperate non
compressed attachements.
Comment 3 Hernan Petitti 2005-02-10 08:00:57 EST
Apparently the problem was solved with kernel 2.6.10 or newer, because
X didn't crash again.
