Bug Description

Please, see http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=344103 and http://hp500.xf.cz/us/Main.html (Manual method patch for Kernel).

The touchpad in an HP 500[1] doesn't function in 2.6.17 (nor, apparently, feisty?). The problem appears to be with the i8042 kernel driver - it doesn't find the psaux port on the ps2 controller (and thus never the touchpad). There is a crude fix and a description of the problem, as affecting several users in the thread Juan linked to above.

dmesg reports:

PNP: PS/2 Controller [PNP0303:C1A4,PNP0f13:C1A5] at 0x60,0x64 irq 1,12
Failed to disable AUX port, but continuing anyway... Is this a SiS?
If AUX port is really absent please use the i8042.noaux option.
serio: i8042 KBD port at 0x60,0x64 irq 1

There doesn't appear to be an upstream fix for this (or at least according to google), and the problem is reported as affecting Fedora Core 6 here:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions//showthread.php?t=523181 (similar patch available there).

Regards,

Matt

Same issue with an HP 510 Notebook. Touchpad not detected so Xorg doesn't see it.

Problem still present on 2.6.20-15-generic

Hi,

One way to solve this is edit drivers/input/serio/i8042.c source, line #549 (i8042_check_aux function), and add:

return 0;

The 18 month support period for Edgy Eft 6.10 has reached it's end of life. As a result, we are closing the linux-source-2.6.17 Edgy Eft kernel task.
