It's called a ClickPad, it's supported in X.org released with F17.
Oh! Thanks for that info. Indeed we're running F17 on it (Samsung 5
series IIRC) without any issues at all. Fedora may work great on it, but
this old dog isn't adapting so well to the new tricks of these
touchy-clicky things. Oh well, praise be the new days where it all just
works vs. the old days where you prayed the most critical bits worked. =)
