Description Dr Thomas Conway 2004-10-12 23:12:42 UTC
X seems to run fine except that the touchpad while registering
movements does not seem to register taps.

This is observed on my Compaq Evo N800w laptop using out-of-the-box
FC3 test3, using the workstation default install.

Apart from this flaw, which can be worked around by using the buttons
instead of doing taps, test3 looks pretty good. Well done everyone.

Oh, yes, just to give more detail, here's the entry from dmesg when it
finds the touchpad [with a bit of context]:
