    More important than 'tpconfig' is that the native synaptics drivers for
    both gpm and XFree86 won't work under 2.5+ either.

    Jens Taprogee has also been working on a Synaptics Input driver. The
    main difference in what I have is that his passes the absolute events up
    to the mousdev layer, which in turn does the heavy lifting. Much better
    IMO, as mousedev can get new features which will apply to all
    absolute-mode touchpads and other input devices.
