Package: debian-installer
Severity: grave


I downloaded the netinst daily-built image at [1] because I needed a
rescue CD and tried the 'rescuegui' boot target: while it loads
without any problem, as soon as I touch the touchpad of my IBM T42p
[2], the pointer disappeares.  The same happens with the 'installgui'
boot target.  Checking the logs in the first console doesn't show any
error (and the Synaptics TouchPad is correctly recognized [3]).

Some points:

- this happens only with the touchpad, not with the IBM TrackPad

- pressing the touchpad buttons seem to leave the pointer in its place

- the same burned image works as expected into qemu (I mean, the
  pointer doesn't disappear).

The severity is grave because we've two problems here:

1) the pointer disappearing

2) the fact that in the country selection window, the country submenu
   cannot be opened without the mouse.  I mean, I chose English as
   language and then I tried to press return on Europe, but this
   triggers the "Continue" button pressed action.  And this ends in a
   loop.  I think that even in the graphical installer, the user
   should be able to use the keyboard instead of the mouse ;-)

I'm here to test any possible solution :-D

Thx, bye,
Gismo / Luca
