I have a HP 500 Notebook with touchpad and a dual boot Windows XP/Suse 10.2 setup. The touchpad works normally in Windows but not in Suse.
My kernel is version 188.8.131.52 and CONFIG_INPUT_EVDEV and CONFIG_MOUSE_PS2 are enabled.
I installed tpconfig (open source driver) but when I run it there is this message: "No Synaptics or ALPS touchpad device found".
cat /proc/bus/input/devices does not list a touchpad.
When booting, there is a message "Failed services in runlevel 3......touchpad"
I know the touchpad is functioning in Windows, so it is physically intact, but Linux does not seem to detect it. I even tried recompiling the kernel but the problem continues.
Is there something I am not doing?
