Description Gene Czarcinski 2004-12-31 19:36:00 UTC
Description of problem:
The system is a Compaq R3000z (Athlon64) with multi-boot systems
installed.  WinXP is installed in hda1 (squoze down), a minimal FC3
i386 in hda3, swap as hda2, FC3 i386 everything install in hda5 and
FC3 x86_64 everything install in hda6.  The problem occurs with both
i386 and x86_64 systems.  

The synaptics touchpad works fine with WinXP.  It also works fine with
ACPI=ON for both i386 and x86_64 (comes up as a "generic" PS2
two-button input device).

However, booting with ACPI=OFF, the synaptic touchpad is not detected.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC3 with all "current" updates applied including kernel 2.6.9-1.698_FC3

Comment 1 Gene Czarcinski 2005-01-09 20:31:30 UTC
I am closing this NOTABUG.  With the latest BIOS upgrade from HP (F33
or SP29481.EXE) I am able to have both the snaptic touchpad and USB
mouse work with acpi=on which is a better solution.
