Description Alex Butcher 2004-11-28 14:48:15 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)
Gecko/20041020 Galeon/1.3.18

Description of problem:
ALPS Glidepoint trackpads are supported by the synaptics driver, but
need a patch applied to the kernel (I guess to stop the generic PS/2
driver from claiming the device). It'd be nice if this was in the
standard FC kernel, seeing as the synaptics userland stuff is now in FC.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check kernel source for evidence of alps.patch being applied

Actual Results:  alps.patch wasn't applied to the standard FC kernel.

Expected Results:  alps.patch was applied to the standard FC kernel.

Got pointer to the patch ?
Comment 2 Alex Butcher 2004-11-28 19:39:41 EST
I've no idea why this isn't in the upstream kernel - I've mailed
Vojtech seperately.

The patch is included in the tarball available from the URL for this

I know, and I'm currently working on fixing that patch so that it can
included in the kernel.

An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem.   Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.

If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.

Thank you.
Comment 6 Alex Butcher 2005-07-16 03:08:09 EDT
I think this patch, or something equivalent, is in 2.6.12-1.1372_FC3 now.
