hi there,

Ive got suse 9.2 on a compaq evo n1015v. Alls working OK apart from the fact my fingers are about to fall off because i can't get the ps/2 mouse working.

Ive checked my XF86Config and reckon its all ok. The thing is, if i move the external mouse around in frustration, the cursor slings itself to the otherside of the screen - so i know its getting an input.

When i go Ctrl + Alt + F10 i see stuff like
psmouse.c touchpad at isa0060/seri01/input0 lost sync at byte 4
message repeated 378 times


Right, so basically the external mouse is inturrupting the touchpad after a certain amount of wiggling.??

What am i going to do! Would love to provide relavent details but not sure what.

Thanks for looking


edit: Here are some bits from my XF86Config that might be relavant
i havent included all the bumph about the monitor and stuff.
