1) Please remove i8042.nopnp=1 pci=nocrs
2) The kernel isn't the one I compiled.

I tested the provided unsigned image from #8, nothing changed.

Sorry, I followed vicaro's instructions first.

I booted your kernel without the parameters, adding journalctl -b from it with in the attachment. If I need to check out anything else.

I guess something's wrong here so \_SB.PCI0.I2C0._REG didn't get evaluated. The _REG methods initialize some variables to make touchpad work.

Please test latest mainline kernel:
https://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v5.8-rc3/

Maciej Rozwód (mrozwod) wrote :

Unfortunately I think the situation looks the same with mainline kernel. Journalctl -b in attachment.

Bug 1882447 looks similar to this one and claimed fixed with kernel v5.7.1.

Bug 1885573 (https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1885573) marks this one as duplicate, but installing kernel 5.7.1 or 5.7.7 didn't work (though I couldn't install linux-headers).

Sorry it is Bug 1873677 (How can I edit what I have just written?)

Maciej Rozwód (mrozwod) wrote :

I tried v5.7.1 kernel and it looks the same as with mainline v5.8.0 and my initial 5.4.0-39.

The part described in comment #13 still looks the same in logs.

Niko (therealhockenberry) wrote :

I found the device with `ls /sys/bus/acpi/devices`, although it does not appear in /proc/bus/input/devices

I found in Bug-Report #1853277 that Kai-Heng Feng stated "We are currently working with Lenovo and it might take a while." Is that still undergoing?

Niko (therealhockenberry) wrote :

Kai-Heng answered: "Lenovo is aware of this issue, but I haven't got the hardware yet."

There is an easy to apply solution in Bug-Report #1861610 that seems to work for some people.

I checked /sys/bus/acpi/devices dir and there is a directory called ELAN0634:00 but the modalias file inside is empty for me.

I also have a problem with my trackpad.
I put various BIOS updates and tried to fix this bug according to descriptions from similar reports in your backlog - no success. Can you guide me on a solution? Maybe I missed something. Thank!
