Anybody else having issues with the synaptics driver lately? I spent the last couple weeks messing around with some other distros, and this morning when I reinstalled Arch I couldn't get X to start without changing my mouse driver from "synaptics" back to "mouse". I get 3 error messages all complaining about not being able to find the synaptics device. I'm not doing anything different from normal. I'm even using the same xorg.conf because I keep a backup of the one I know works. I also ran hwd to make a new one just in case my computer changed its hardware over night, but still no X if I try to use "synaptics".
Has the version of the synaptics package in the repositories changed recently? If so, I'm blaming the new version, because I had an almost identicle problem with FreeBSD using synaptics from ports.
Now, everybody upgrade your driver and tell me if it breaks.
See this thread.
Ah, awesome, thanks alot!
new udev will fix this issue
