Hi, I have a compaq presario r3000, and haven't be able to configure my touchpad, I installed the synaptics package and followed the documentation that comes with it about configuring the alps touchpad. As I use kernel 2.6.11 I didn't patched the kernel since the documentation says it already is patched.

any have an idea what it could be?

best regards Alejandro

did you compile the "evdev" module into your kernel?

It's under Device Drivers > Input device support. That might be it, but it would be hard to say unless you describe your problem in more detail.

Since this is not an amd64 specific issue, a search for 'alps' in the Kernel & Hardware forum might be a good idea. I recently helped someone with an ALPS problem and there are lots of other posts on the subject.
