hey everyone,
    im new to linux and just installed suse 9.0 on my dell inspiron 8600. everything seems to be working well but it doesnt recongize my touchpad or my wireless networking card (Dell TrueMobile™ 1300 WLAN (802.11b/g, 54Mbps) Mini-PCI card ). I configured the mouse to be using both a usb mouse and my touchpad ( so its either a driver problem or a settings problem).

If you need anymore info just ask.

have a try one the driverloader for installing the WLAN.

Suse should find your touch pad automatically, but you can try using touch pad driver to see it can help or not :)
