Description Josh 2005-12-09 19:25:02 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

Description of problem:
Synaptics Touchpad on Acer 4005 Ferrari Laptop (AMD64) never worked on Fedora 4 (x86_64). 

I think the Synaptics touchpad driver should also be updated to 0.14.4. I couldn't find this driver for Fedora Core 4 anywhere. 

Currently, I'm using an external USB mouse.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fedora 4 on Acer Ferrari 4005 laptop,
2. Boot into X

Actual Results:  Synaptics Touchpad unrecognized. It is configured as PS2 Mice.

**** xorg.conf *************
Section "InputDevice"
        Identifier  "Mouse0"
        Driver      "mouse"
        Option      "Protocol" "IMPS/2"
        Option      "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
        Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
        Option      "Emulate3Buttons" "yes"

Expected Results:  Synaptics Touchpad should be detected correctly and configured.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release, please reopen this bug and assign it to the
corresponding Fedora version.
