Description Rui Gouveia 2013-05-29 08:55:16 EDT
(Maybe this bug belongs to component fedup)

Description of problem:

After upgrade with fedup from F17 to F18 touchpad stops working.

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

fedup last version in F17
May 29 13:22:15 Erased: xorg-x11-drv-synaptics-1.6.3-4.fc17.x86_64
May 29 13:23:47 Installed: xorg-x11-drv-synaptics-1.6.3-3.fc18.x86_64

How reproducible:

I only did the process once, but it was reported in different hardware by another user.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade F17 with fedup to F18.
2. Check the xorg-x11-drv-synaptics package release.
3. Check that the touchpad is dead.

Actual results:

Touchpad not working.

Expected results:

Touchpad working.

Additional info:

I fixed the issue removing the F17 package, and installing the F18 one. After a reboot touchpad went back to normal.

# yum remove xorg-x11-drv-synaptics
# yum install xorg-x11-drv-synaptics

Had the identical experience.  Fixed with 'yum distro-sync xorg-x11-drv-synaptics.'  After Xorg logout, touchpad detected and working correctly.
Comment 2 Fedora Update System 2013-06-26 01:33:48 EDT
xorg-x11-drv-synaptics-1.6.4-2.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
Comment 3 Rui Gouveia 2013-06-26 05:42:08 EDT

The problem *WAS NOT* with the package itself. Removing the F17 package and installing the F18 one does fix this issue. Or, simply running "yum dist-sync".

I opened this bug because I think fedup should do this "out-of-the-box". It's a standard package.

Thank you
Comment 4 Peter Hutterer 2013-06-26 16:32:14 EDT
the upgrade path was broken, with the F17 package > the F18 package. This is why you had to distro-sync. as I wrote in the udpate, the new package doesn't have any code changes, it merely updates the package version.
