Description Mitchell Lewandowski 2005-06-14 21:24:34 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050524 Firefox/1.0 (Ubuntu package 1.0.2 MFSA2005-44) Description of problem: When booting off of the FC4 DVD, the system boots into X without a hitch, save for the fact that I have no use of my trackpad. FWIW, I did not see anything about this in Bugzilla, or in the release notes (sorry if this is a dup). Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Boot off of FC4-ppc-DVD 2. Observe that after X starts, there is no use of the trackpad 3. Actual Results: No cursor movement Expected Results: The cursor should move in coordination with your fingers on the trackpad Additional info: This bug also afflicts Ubuntu (I opened the bug there as well) - heard anything on the grapevine? :)

The trackpad driver is included in 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4. Please could you test it?

[This comment has been added as a mass update for all FC4 kernel bugs. If you have migrated this bug from an FC3 bug today, ignore this comment.] Please retest your problem with todays 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4 update. If your problem involved being unable to boot, or some hardware not being detected correctly, please make sure your /etc/modprobe.conf is correct *BEFORE* installing any kernel updates. If in doubt, you can recreate this file using.. mv /etc/sysconfig/hwconf /etc/sysconfig/hwconf.bak mv /etc/modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf.bak kudzu Thank you.
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2005-09-30 06:15:46 UTC
Mass update to all FC4 bugs: An update has been released (2.6.13-1.1526_FC4) which rebases to a new upstream kernel (220.127.116.11). As there were ~3500 changes upstream between this and the previous kernel, it's possible your bug has been fixed already. Please retest with this update, and update this bug if necessary. Thanks.
Comment 4 Dave Jones 2005-11-10 19:14:07 UTC
2.6.14-1.1637_FC4 has been released as an update for FC4. Please retest with this update, as a large amount of code has been changed in this release, which may have fixed your problem. Thank you.
Comment 5 Dave Jones 2006-02-03 05:16:44 UTC
This is a mass-update to all currently open kernel bugs. A new kernel update has been released (Version: 2.6.15-1.1830_FC4) based upon a new upstream kernel release. Please retest against this new kernel, as a large number of patches go into each upstream release, possibly including changes that may address this problem. This bug has been placed in NEEDINFO_REPORTER state. Due to the large volume of inactive bugs in bugzilla, if this bug is still in this state in two weeks time, it will be closed. Should this bug still be relevant after this period, the reporter can reopen the bug at any time. Any other users on the Cc: list of this bug can request that the bug be reopened by adding a comment to the bug. If this bug is a problem preventing you from installing the release this version is filed against, please see bug 169613. Thank you.
