Installing with Fedora-Workstation-netinst-x86_64-26-1.5.iso downloaded today on a Dell XPS 13 9360 (bios 1.3.2), and the touchpad does not work (no cursor movements).
libinput-list-devices (version is 1.7.3):
Device: SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad
Seat: seat0, default
Tap drag lock: disabled
Middle emulation: disabled
Scroll methods: *two-finger edge
Click methods: *button-areas clickfinger
Accel profiles: none
PS: not entirly sure what is the best product to file this in
This happened to me on all DELL machines that I tested here. In all cases the touchpad works completely fine after the installation completes.
How is this a kernel issue? The touchpad has been detected by the kernel, and the input device is obviously there according to udev.
I run into similar issues trying to use a USB mouse, it simply does not work (this was a Fedora 25 netinstall right now).
