Description From 2005-04-10 20:53:03
A little bit of history:     
Replaced Debian with ALT Linux Compact 2.3     
Installed synaptics touchpad package     
Had to manually edit XF86Config-4 (used the settings that worked fine under     
Debian)     
Got the message "Synaptics TouchPad no synaptics event device found (checked 33     
nodes)"     
Upgraded to Sisyphus and Xorg (see attached Xorg.conf)     
Got the same error. TouchPad driver fails to find the device.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy enclosed xorg.conf file onto /etc/X11/xorg.conf    
2. Restart X server    
Actual Results:  
Synaptics TouchPad no synaptics event device found (checked 33 nodes) 
No core pointer 

Expected Results:  
Synaptics Touchpad is properly recognized and is installed as the core pinter

TouchPad worked fine under Debian Sid with their 0.12.5 version of the driver 
and XF86Config-4 as posted above.

Дополнительно - нужно загрузить драйвер evdev в ядро. Это делает hotplug из
Sisyphus.
