xorg config-problem -- no mouse (on laptop with synaptics touchpad)

I just made an dist-upgrade from Sarge to Etch. I switched from XFree86
to Xorg, but it will not start.

here is a part of the Xorg.log
(**) Generic Keyboard: Core Keyboard
(**) Option "Protocol" "standard"

Synaptics Touchpad The evdev kernel module seems to be missing
(**) Option "Device" "/dev/psaux"
(EE) xf86OpenSerial: Cannot open device /dev/psaux
	No such device.
Synaptics driver unable to open device

(II) UnloadModule: "synaptics"
(WW) No core pointer registered
(II) XINPUT: Adding extended input device "Generic Keyboard" (type: KEYBOARD)

The problem seems to be the mouse or touchpad. The computer is a laptop
(Compaq Presario 2100), no mouse connected. Before dist-upgrade there was 
no problem.

Here is /etc/X11/xorg.conf

What is wrong?

The first lines of the Xorg.log says:

X Window System Version 6.9.0 (Debian 6.9.0.dfsg.1-4 20060114230205 David Nusinow <dnusinow@debian.org>)
Release Date: 21 December 2005
X Protocol Version 11, Revision 0, Release 6.9
Build Operating System: Linux 2.6.15-1-686 i686 [ELF] 
Current Operating System: Linux Mobilius 2.6.8-2-386 #1 Thu May 19 17:40:50 JST 2005 i686

Is the solution to upgrade the kernel to 2.6.15-1-686 ?
