Sure. That hardware has been a thorn in my side since I can remember.
We've had "works/doesn't work" cycles of that way back into FC2 era.
I've no idea why it's so fragile.
Can't find the thread, so replying here, but you said something about
the rc kernels needing HAL or DBUS from rawhide for the synaptics driver
It there any intention of getting this ported (or solved)?
I'm happy to test these kernels, but until my mouse works properly it's
a real hassle. The three things I use most on my laptop are the
keyboard, the mouse and the screen. Without a well functioning mouse
it's hard to get stuff done (or test things).
