Touchpad not working on X - Slackware Current


Alright, so I finally decided to test Slackware Current on my laptop. After this upgrade my touchpad does not work in X, but it does work in the terminal. The mouse section of my xorg.conf is:
Code:
Section "InputDevice"

    # generated from default
    Identifier     "Mouse0"
    Driver         "mouse"
    Option         "Protocol" "PS/2"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    Option         "TapButton1" "1"
    Option         "TapButton2" "2"
    Option         "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
    Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
    Option "HorizScrollDelta" "0
EndSection
If I cat /dev/psaux I get output when i move my touchpad around. I also ran cat on /dev/mouse and I also get output from that when i move my touchpad around. I also tried Protocol "Auto" instead of PS/2, and IMPS/2 to no avail. Also, to begin with I was using the synaptics driver, and i moved it back to the generic mouse driver, and still nothing. I have to be missing something. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Can you find anything interesting in /var/log/Xorg.0.log?
