I have a strange issue. I own this particular laptop: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834298945 and FreeBSD 10.3-STABLE, 11-CURRENT and 10.3-RELEASE don't recognize this touchpad. It's not even recognizable as a generic PS/2 mouse. No matter how many suggestions I followed (such as putting hw.psm.synaptics_support="1" in loader.conf or modifying xorg.conf), this touchpad remains completely undetectable on either X or the console by the versions of FreeBSD that I mentioned above. These versions of FreeBSD never created a psm0 device in the /dev directory. However, FreeBSD 9.3-RELEASE did detect this touchpad as a generic PS/2 mouse! When I typed
after loading 9.3-RELEASE, I got this:
dmesg | grep psm
. Then I am able to use the touchpad after executing the moused command. So, please explain to me what I can do to get rid of this issue on 11-CURRENT or 10.3-STABLE. All I want is for one of these versions to recognize this touchpad as a generic PS/2 mouse.
