Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

I am just wondering what I need to do to install the Synaptic Touchpad drivers for my Toshiba A100-SK8 laptop. I have found a couple of sites explaing how to do it but I am just not sure if it will work with my Toshiba as it is not listed as one of the laptop it works with. I figure that it is pretty standard across all the platforms so I am assuming that I can use the tutorial I found. Heres a link I am just wondering if you guys think this will work. I want to install the drivers because I want to turn off the tap to click options on the touchpad because its annoying and at the moment WAY to senesitive. I am randomly clicking things left right and center and its driving me up the wall lol.
I would use something like yum or I think the graphical option is pirut. These handle dependencies better then rpm. But either way, good luck with it.
Well by the looks of it I will have to use a localinstall anyways right? So would yum still resolve the dependencies for it if it is a localinstall? I can't seem to find the package anywhere as part of something for yum
oh wow perfect guys I appreciate that. I will look into both. Hopefully I can get one of them working! Unfortunately I have to reinstall Fedora Core 6 as I messed it up doing a lvreduce. But it will be done quickly!
skyeye your link doesn't work for some reason....?
