Description of problem:
After updating everything except the kernel from the up2date, the synaptic touchpad on my Fujitsu Siemens laptop dies completely. Also USB mouse slows down dramatically.
/var/log/messages has this error message while connecting the USB mouse:
Sep 18 10:28:50 localhost kernel: usb 3-2: new low speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 3
Sep 18 10:28:51 localhost kernel: input: USB HID v1.10 Mouse [Logitech USB-PS/2 Optical Mouse] on usb-0000:00:13.1-2
Sep 18 10:28:51 localhost hal.hotplug: DEVPATH is not set (subsystem input)
Building a custom kernel 2.6.12 seems to kill also the usb mouse completely in addition to the touchpad, making the X system completely unusable.
FC4 installer finds the Touchpad fine and there it works.
xorg.conf settings have not changed (it has the synaptic stuff in there), synaptic driver can be compiled by hand and installed. Problem is, the synaptic hardware is not found, proc/bus/input/devices shows:
I: Bus=0011 Vendor=0001 Product=0001 Version=ab41
N: Name="AT Translated Set 2 keyboard"
H: Handlers=kbd mouse0 event0
B: KEY=40000 4 2000078 3802078 f840d001 b2ffffdf ffefffff ffffffff fffffffe

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Buy a crappy Fujitsu Siemens Amilo L 1310G laptop
2.Install FC4, enjoy your synaptic touchpad
3.Run up2date for everything but the kernel, see your touchpad die
Actual Results: Touchpad died. HW not found anymore. FC4 installer still finds it but the installed system no longer does.
Expected Results: Everything should be "up 2 date"
