Default Bug#484565: /lib/modules/2.6.24-1-amd64/kernel/drivers/input/mouse/psmouse.ko: Patch to enable Dell 1420 touch pad's scroll is not working

Package: linux-image-2.6.24-1-amd64
Version: 2.6.24-7
Severity: normal
File: /lib/modules/2.6.24-1-amd64/kernel/drivers/input/mouse/psmouse.ko

*** Please type your report below this line ***
As noticed in bug report #452752

(http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=452752) there was a
need to patch the file drivers/input/mouse/alps.c in order to make the
touch pad's scroll work in some laptops.


At that time it was said that the patch was going to be included in the
2.6.24 kernel.

I installed Debian Lenny in a new Dell 1420 and after installation
upgraded the kernel to 2.6.24-1-amd64 but the touch pad's scroll does not

work. So I downloaded the kernel source to apply the patch that was
working in another Dell inspiron 1420 with kernel 2.6.22 and noticed that the
patch was already applied but with a small change.

In the current 2.6.24 source the patched line (line 36) says:


{ { 0x73, 0x02, 0x50 }, 0xcf, 0xcf, ALPS_FW_BK_1 } /* Dell Vostro 1400
*/

However the patch I was applying to 2.6.22 says:

{ { 0x73, 0x02, 0x50 }, 0x4f, 0x4f, ALPS_FW_BK_1 } /* Dell Vostro 1400
*/


So I changed it, recompiled and reinstalled the mouse drivers, but the
scroll still doesn't work.

Then I upgraded the kernel to 2.6.25-2-amd64 but the scroll didn't work
either.

P.D.: Please don't pay attention to the "hardy" entry in "APT policy" it appears because of a repository I must add in order to install wxFormBuilder, there is no Debian package for that, but that repository only has the wxFormBuilder package.

can you try 2.6.26-rc8 snapshot builds?
see trunk apt lines -> http://wiki.debian.org/DebianKernel

I'm sorry I forgot to* update this thread.

There is no problem in the kernel, this bug must be closed.

The problem was that I was using the default xorg config file and* that file didn't had an entry for the synaptic driver. As soon as I modified the xorg.conf and added the synaptic driver everything worked fine.


Thanks a lot, and once again, I'm sorry I forgot to report this was fixed.
