Hello all,

Finally decided to give a development kernel a try on an HP zt1180
laptop.  The kernel build went smoothly and I thought all was well
(well except I guess I've gotta figure out frame buffer support again)
until I started X and discovered that the mouse wasn't working.

I'm guessing this list doesn't allow attachments, and I don't really
want to splat all over everybody with the output I thought relevant,
so I've posted it on my website:

	http://www.parts-unknown.org/hp-zt1180-dmesg.gz
	http://www.parts-unknown.org/hp-zt1180-lspci.gz
	http://www.parts-unknown.org/hp-zt1180.config.gz

wget should work.

Did I miss a configuration option or do some other stupid thing?

I do not use XFree. I'm using 1600x1200 radeonfb consoles.

What's difference between touchscreen and touchpad? Both use absolute
directions, and rest are just buttons... As I need working gpm, without 
mousedev support Synaptics mode is of no use for me.
