Regression: Synaptics touchpad stop working after suspend on EFI/Macbook Air
Last modified: 2012-05-07 00:15:53 EDT
Description of problem:
After upgrading xorg-x11-drv-synaptics.x86_64 from 0:22.214.171.1242* to 0:126.96.36.1993* the touchpad on my Macbook Air 4,2 (mid 2011) stopped working after wakeup from suspend. Restarting the X server with Ctrl+Alt+Back makes it work again. Downgrading to 0:1.5.99-7.20120207git141d9120b.fc17 using yum downgrade fixes the issue. Note that *.902 also used to work, but I don't know how to downgrade to a specific version).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-drv-synaptics.x86_64 0:188.8.131.523 - 0:184.108.40.2063-2.20120419git11d892964.fc17 (which is the latest version I can install as of now)
Steps to Reproduce:
Touchpad stops working (can't move pointer)
Touchpad works as usual
I applied all EFI updates from Apple but it didn't change anything. I'm booting Fedora 17 in EFI mode, no BIOS emulation afaik.
