Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-image-2.6.17-6-686

I have to pass i8042.nomux to the kernel at boot time in order to have my synaptic touchpad working properly. The computer is a Fujitsu-Simens Lifebook P7010 running an up-to-date Edgy Eft. The symptoms are exactly as reported here in bug 21558:

Output of dmesg | grep -i touchpad:

description: updated

The 18 month support period for Edgy Eft 6.10 has reached its end of life. As a result, we are closing the linux-source-2.6.17 Edgy Eft kernel task. However, development has already began for the upcoming Intrepid Ibex 8.10 release. It would be helpful if you could test the upcoming release and verify if this is still an issue - http://www.ubuntu.com/testing . If the issue still exists, please update this report by changing the Status of the "linux" task from "Incomplete" to "New". We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make this transition. Thanks!
