Has anybody managed to get a Synaptics touchpad working on -current with

I have a Compaq Presario 2143 and the touchpad is not detected with ACPI
enabled. With ACPI disabled it appears and works perfectly.

A short time ago somebody suggested adding


but that did nothing.

I really need ACPI as without it not much else works, and it the only thing
on the laptop that does not work.

SuSE Linux finds it straight off, but -current is far and away the best at
supporting the cardbus controller which locks SuSE regularly.
