Kernel 2.6.11-1.1312_FC4 breaks input from both synaptics and mouse
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:19:41 EST
Description of problem:
After the upgrade to this development kernel (from 1305), mouse input does not
work any more (although both devices are configured - see xorg.conf), only
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run X on this kernel with the attached xorg.conf on HP ZE4201 notebook.
Mouse doesn't work.
Both the touchpad and mouse should work, as they do with previously released

X configuration file
there are no changes betweem 1305 and 1312 that could explain this.
Can you paste a diff -u output between dmesg output of both kernels ?
They should be identical as far as the input layer is concerned.
The only changes were e1000 driver, slab poison detector, scsi geometry, serial
console, max num of cpus on x86-64, and updated audit patches.
was there an X update as well perhaps ? Maybe something changed there.

dmesg output of the 1305 kernel
Just booted 1312 and both devices work.
So, the official cause of this bug is drug induced state of the reporter :-(
I have no idea now why it didn't want to work the first time I booted 1312...
Obviuosly, not a bug. Sorry for wasting resources before the release.
