Description Bart Vanbrabant 2006-04-11 07:38:07 EDT
Description of problem:
The latest xorg update broke the synaptics driver. X can't start any more when
the driver is used because of unresolved symbols.
Comment 1 Bart Vanbrabant 2006-04-11 07:46:28 EDT
These are the error the X server reports:

I tried recompiling the srpm but that didn't work.
Comment 2 Jason Vas Dias 2006-04-11 11:59:48 EDT
I can confirm this is a problem with synaptics-0.14.4-5 - X fails to start and
I get the same messages in /var/log/Xorg.0.log .
Downgrading to synaptics-0.14.4-4-4.2.1 fixes the problem.

Fixed in rawhide.
