Has anybody had any success setting up a touchpad under linux kernel 2.6?

    I'm having a hell of a time. I've built no fewer than 15 kernels (v. 2.6.7 and 2.6.8) in the last 48 hours, and not a single one has detected the Alps touchpad, even after the Alps patch and installing the synaptics driver. In fact, even Knoppix won't pick it up with kernel 2.6.6.

    Any ideas?

    are you compiling the drivers into the kernel? Do you know what drivers it needs?
