Description Jens Weibler 2008-11-05 04:32:30 UTC
Latest working kernel version: ?
Earliest failing kernel version: ?
Distribution: Gentoo
Hardware Environment: Dell Latitude E6500

Disabling wlan0 (ifconfig wlan0 down) causes reconnect of my TouchPad:
Nov  5 13:10:41 jtb [ 1691.213008] psmouse.c: DualPoint TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 1 bytes away.
Nov  5 13:10:41 jtb [ 1691.232202] iwlagn 0000:0c:00.0: PCI INT A disabled
Nov  5 13:10:42 jtb [ 1691.998700] psmouse.c: resync failed, issuing reconnect request
Nov  5 13:10:43 jtb [ 1693.479513] input: PS/2 Generic Mouse as /class/input/input11

It happens if I use the TouchPad shortly after disabling wlan0. Beside the TouchPad the whole system hangs for a short while. For this reason the selected component is not Input Devices. Adding "i8042.reset i8042.nomux" to the kernel options doesn't help.

Yes, seems so.

Comment 4 Jens Weibler 2008-12-02 15:00:42 UTC
I manually patched my 2.6.28-rc7. The only problem was that there is only FH_TCSR_CHNL_NUM (value: 7) which I used..


The latency has improved but the error still occurs:
[  359.767911] psmouse.c: DualPoint TouchPad at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 1 bytes away.
[  359.779827] iwlagn 0000:0c:00.0: PCI INT A disabled
[  360.536865] psmouse.c: resync failed, issuing reconnect request

Sorry, in advance if I'm wrong.

Maybe your problem of "psmouse.c: DualPoint TouchPad at
isa0060/serio1/input0 lost synchronization..." is also related to another bug with the ALPS touchpad/-stick combination.

Please consider a look at:

Thank!
