Description Matthew Saltzman 2006-01-11 08:34:09 EST
Description of problem:
After upgrade to kernel-2.6.15-1.1823_FC4 (currently in updates-testing), my
Synaptics touchpad no longer works in X.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot kernel-2.6.15-1.1823_FC4 on a laptop with a Synaptics touchpad.
2. Start X.
3. Attempt to use touchpad features like tapping or border scrolling.
Actual results:
Features don't work.

Expected results:
Features should work.

Additional info:
No problem in previous kernels through kernel-2.6.14-1.1656_FC4.
Also have current FC4 synaptics-0.14.0-2.

No apparent errors in /var/log/messages.  But in /var/log/Xorg.0.log, I get the
following errors:

(II) Synaptics touchpad driver version 0.14.0
Synaptics no synaptics event device found (checked 1 nodes)
(**) Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
(**) Option "SHMConfig" "on"

(EE) Synaptics Unable to query/initialize Synaptics hardware.
(EE) PreInit failed for input device "Synaptics"
(II) UnloadModule: "synaptics"

needs a udev update.
Comment 7 Harald Hoyer 2006-02-15 07:10:29 EST
Does the latest udev erratum fix your issue?
Comment 8 Matthew Saltzman 2006-02-15 14:31:06 EST
Yes, touchpad works fine with latest udev and kernel updates.  Thanks.
