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):
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
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.
