Dear gentoo community,

My computer is a T410 thinkpad with a dual boot of windows 7 and gentoo, my desktop environment mainly consists of fluxbox, fbpanel, and slim. This morning I ran to school to take an exam and I ended up leaving the house with my laptop running on battery, when I came back my computer was off, since I don't have any tool that automatically turns the computer off when it is running on battery. So I turned on my computer when I came back home, waited for a somewhat long fsck during gentoo's startup, and logged in as usual on my gentoo to find out that the buttons of the synaptics are not working.

Normally I tested the synpatics on windows 7 and it worked properly. So I restarted my computer back into gentoo, still no good results, then I logged off fluxbox with ctrl + alt + del and logged in back again, and now the mouse is working. I think it has something to do with corrupt hard drive data, since my computer was on until it ran out of battery juice.

I'm considering re-emerging X11's evdev driver, and btw my /boot partition was never mounted today, so kernel image file corruption may not be the problem but who knows..

Don't you already have the answer to that question?
