Touchpad altered after upgrade
I performed a linux upgrade, can't remember how, i think with yum, and the kernel got upgraded there as well. Now, before i did that, i was able to double-finger on the touchpad and i could drag objects and windows sliding my finger on the touchpad and then letting go. I was able to select objects the same way. But now, i can't do this anymore. Does anyone have any idea what happened or where i can start looking for answers? Another interesting fact is that otherwise, it's working fine.
This happened about 2 months ago and i've been searching almighty google for the solution but it hasn't come yet.
My laptop is a toshiba satellite A70-SP211 having fedora core 3 on it.
Thanks for the help in advanced guys.
The first step is to identify your touchpad model and manufacturer. This should be easily found using lspci and dmesg. Hit google with the new information and/or post it up here."Time is an illusion. Lunchtime, doubly so."

Here's the result of the lspci command, which i read and does not give out any ideas.

Here's something i picked up grepping the long list with mouse and touchpad:
mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice psmouse.c: GlidePoint at isa0060/serio4/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 1 bytes away.
I am going nuts over this problem, can anybody give me anymore hints with the information i've posted so far? The last post represents the time when i started googling, and today i just want to get it done and i don't know how.
