Description linux4fun 2010-07-19 17:40:17 EDT
Description of problem: The trackpad of Dell Precision M4500 is not recognized as such, but instead, as a PS/2 Generic Mouse, thus it is not possible to use scrolling ... Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Might be linked to Bug #590880 however I do not have the technical knowledge to make the checks, debug the module and retrieve the device code. How reproducible: Always Actual results: The trackpad and track stick have basic mouse functionalities and are not visible via synclient. Additional info: # synclient -l Couldn't find synaptics properties. No synaptics driver loaded? # grep ALPS /var/log/Xorg.0.log (nothing found)

I've just applied the patch referenced in comment #2 to kernel-188.8.131.52-47.fc13.src.rpm, and it works fine for me on my DELL Precision M4500, enabling the scrolling functions.

Having said that, and now having gone through a suspend/resume cycle, the mouse pointer went crazy on resume, so I don't think it's quite there yet.
