SubjectALPS touchpad woes with 2.6.12rc1 and rc1-mm3
Hi all,

In the kernels 2.6.12-rc1 and 2.6.12-rc1-mm3 my ALPS touchpad is not
recognized by the Xorg driver. The strange thing is that in dmesg ALPS is
detected, but then the Xorg driver tell strange things...

In dmesg:
[4294673.596000] Enabling hardware tapping
[4294673.656000] input: PS/2 Mouse on isa0060/serio1
[4294673.659000] input: AlpsPS/2 ALPS GlidePoint on isa0060/serio1

In Xorg.0.log: (conf file is: )

(**) |-->Input Device "alps"
(**) |-->Input Device "mice"
(II) LoadModule: "synaptics"
(II) Loading /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/input/synaptics_drv.o
(II) Module synaptics: vendor="The XFree86 Project"
compiled for 4.2.0, module version = 1.0.0
Module class: XFree86 XInput Driver
ABI class: XFree86 XInput driver, version 0.3

but after this:

(II) Synaptics touchpad driver version 0.14.0
(**) Option "Device" "/dev/input/event1"

(EE) alps no synaptics touchpad detected and no repeater device
(EE) alps Unable to query/initialize Synaptics hardware.
(EE) PreInit failed for input device "alps"

It worked ok in 2.6.11.

All the configuration, dmesg, lsmod, Xorg.0.log is etc is here for -rc1:

And here for -rc1-mm3:

Perfectly working similar data is in:
