Description of problem:
i have a Dell inspiron 4150  which worked fine on my own 2.5 series kerlens  up
to 2.5.72  since then it hasnt worked with 2.5 kernels  from what ive been able
to tell it is related to some changes in the code for the touch pads  and can be
resolved by building a synaptics driver for X which i havent tested yet.  i
guess its not really a kernel bug but a RFE for X  but i feel its related here.
 i am running an system  using all rawhide packages as at sunday.  

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install 2.5.74 kernel
2. boot into the kerenl

Actual Results:  mouse does not move

Expected Results:  mouse to move

Additional info:

the driver is available at http://w1.894.telia.com/~u89404340/touchpad/index.html

The driver mentioned works for me, but requires evdev to be loaded into the kernel.
