Reconnecting ALPS touchpad at boot
 
Hi.

I've have a HP laptop with ALPS glidepoint device and FC4. I have two ways to make it work; either I use i8042.nomux (recognized as a psmouse) , or I it turn off and on during boot after the mouse services have started and before x server starts (too hard). I want to use neither of them.

So is there a way to make it reconnect automatically during the boot? I've tried with
"echo -n reconnect /sys/bus/serio/devices/serio4" in /etc/rc.local. I also know about the possibility to recompile the kernel with psmouse as a module, but I don't want to do that because there must an easier way.
