Hi,

I recently compiled 2.6.15.5 on my dell laptop, which has ALPS
Glidepoint Touchpad. During bootup, sometimes mouse is getting
configured and sometimes not. Because there is no /dev/mouse, KDE is
not starting sometimes. I have to remove "psmouse" modue and reload it
again for the mouse to work fine. On some occasions, it takes some
time before /dev/mouse appears. Does anybody know about this flaky
behavior and what I should do to get around it?

Thanks in advance,
-Satish
