X log from installer
Description of problem:
I tried installing Fedora 13 to a Vaio VPC Z11-X9E/B.
The mouse cursor was inactive throughout the process - perhaps there is a problem in detecting the touchpad?
I used the Vesa X server as the normal one came up with a blank screen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

syslog from installer

program log from installer
Based on the guide here:
I added the boot parameter
and then the touchpad worked normally.
Could we get output of dmesg command after the Xorg is up and running, please?
I thought that's what 'syslog' contained? Anyway, dmesg output attached. I had to switch back to the console as Fedora isn't actually installed yet, in case that makes any difference.

dmesg output after installer X server has started
In dmesg I have found:
PNP: PS/2 Controller [PNP0303:PS2K] at 0x60,0x64 irq 1
PNP: PS/2 appears to have AUX port disabled, if this is incorrect please boot with i8042.nopnp
serio: i8042 KBD port at 0x60,0x64 irq 1
mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice
To the best of my knowledge this is a kernel issue outside of Xorg team reach. Reassigning to kernel component, but very willing to be persuaded otherwise.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
