I upgraded my Solo5300 from FC1 to FC2 today and lost the tap functionality on the touch pad. Whatever is happening gets the Synaptics hardware in a state where it won't even work with the "other" OS unless I power-cycle the notebook.

I don't know if it's related, but I also had xkb errors when ever I log in until I disabled it in XF86Config.

Any ideas what's going on?


I received the following advice from a non-list member which worked like a charm.


Hi Bill, read your message here:


I did some googling, and while I see that you've already had one on-list
response, I also came up with this:


I added that kernel option and things are back to the way they used to be
under FC1.

As for your other question about the Xkb error, changing XkbRules to
"xorg" (was "xfree86") in /etc/X11/XF86Config made those errors go away.

HTH!  Please forward to the list if you like, I am not subscribed, I just
saw your msg in the archives.
