Thanks a lot for your answer; I try to ask you for some suggestion for
some minor problems I have with the touchpad. When I use it with the
synaptics xfree86 drivers loaded often it happens that even if I am
moving the finger on the touchpad the cursor doesn't move, and I have
to release the finger from the touchpad and to tap again to make it to
move. Or some other times instead of moving the cursor, it scrolls up
and down the window is it above, as if I was tapping above the
vertical scroll bar of it, while I am not doing this. Or when I double
tap on the firefox url form it doesn't select all the url it is
currently inside it.
This problems don't appear when instead the synaptics driver it is not used.
I am using the same configuration of the readme you suggested, and in
the boot options of the kernel I have "noapic nolapic i8042.nomux
noapictimer" that I have read somewhere are supposed to improve the
behaviour of the touchpad.
Any suggestion will be appreciated.
