Description of problem:
NTrig Duosense isn't recognized in Fedora 15 & Fedora 16.
At boot I see the attached DMESG, and I can't find it in my xinput list. While this should have been handled by hid-ntrig.
The exact same problem is apparent in ubuntu: But the patch is a .deb.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always (with DELL XPS 15)
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot XPS 15 with Fedora 15 - 16.
2.View message on startup
3.Observe the lack of 'xinput -list'
No input in
Xinput -list (see attached)
Being recognized in Xinput.

Command: xinput -list
Looking around the exact same bug is reproducible on:
Dell XPS 15z (with NTRIG)
Dell XPS 15 (with NTRIG, as stated)
I can confirm that: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/utouch/+bug/724831/+attachment/2129533/+files/hid-ntrig-dkms_1.1.5%7Etest_all.deb this patch is for the same problem in ubuntu and fixes it.
Whatever is included in that .deb is a rather large departure from what is in the upstream kernel. It also seems to be based against 2.6.38. If/when those changes get pushed upstream, then your problem should be resolved. At the moment, we can't carry anything from it as-is.
Is it possible for this patch to be packaged for fedora / RHEL, I can confirm it works in the latest Ubuntu kernel, I don't particularly want to have to install ubuntu for this reason alone.
Thanks for your help,

What Ubuntu has is not a patch. It's a full replacement driver, and we cannot carry that in Fedora. The best possible solution is for the changes to get pushed into the upstream driver. I'll try emailing Canonical about their changes today to see if that is possible for them to do.
RHEL is separate from Fedora, so you would need to open a separate request against RHEL.
It appears the full driver is here.
http://bitmath.org/code/hid/hid-ntrig-dkms/ it adds support for many devices.
Maybe this should be included in fedora, i haven't had success in installing it yet, i'm still trying.
I've emailed Henrik Rydberg about this. The DKMS source is separate from the in-kernel version, and while some attempts to merge them have been made none have actually succeeded.
Fedora does not carry out-of-tree drivers, so we cannot include the DKMS source. You might try discussing this with the rpmfusion project and seeing if a kmod for it can be built.
