Does it work post-install?  Can you attach the output of
/usr/sbin/kudzu -p -c MOUSE?

Comment 2 Robin Boyce 2004-07-30 15:41:43 UTC

just found this site if it helps 
http://rzr.online.fr/docs/comp/keyboard.htm  (go down to bottom)

mosue worked under Installer a s Generic PS/2 Mouse and if hes got it 
to work under linux as a Generic PS/2 Mouse 80% or so then must work 
some how. 

"Touchpad works pretty well. I don't think it is a synaptic device 
but it worked. "

I've similar problem with my Alps touchpad on Clevo D22ES notebook.
The problem was introduced with kernel 2.6.x, after upgrade to Fedora
Core 2, and it is also persistent after upgrade to FC3. Tested with
all kernels released for FC2/3. Fedora Core 1 (with kernel 2.4.x)
worked ok.

If I want to use the touchpad, I must first boot MS Windows and then
reboot to FC3. Windows probably performs some touchpad related
hardware initialization steps which are persistent between reboots.
After such reboot the touchpad works well (as PS/2 mouse) with FC3
(kernel 2.6.x).

Comment 6 Alex Butcher 2004-11-28 19:41:11 UTC
You might like to try rebuilding the standard FC kernel unchanged,
apart from adding the alps.patch supplied with the synaptics source

Comment 7 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 05:52:40 UTC
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat.  The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.

If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.

Thank you.
