Autostart in debian & psmouse
My system is Debian sarge, 2.6.10 kernel.

I've got some problems with psmouse module & debian autostart

First, my psmouse module doesn't correctly detect my Synaprics touchpad.

$ modprobe -r psmouse
$ modprobe psmouse
input:PS/2 Generic Mouse on isa0060/serio4
$ modprobe -r psmouse
$ modprobe psmouse
Synaptics Touchpad, model: 1....

I mean, I need to reload psmouse 2 times to get it detect my touchpad. Why?

And also, how to place this module to autostart? I need to load and reload it 2 times and start it before X.

Also, my kern.lof says:

"mice: PS/2 mouse device common for all mice"

Help please
Maybe I should include some parametrs to 'modprobe psmouse'?

Did you try putting "psmouse" in /etc/modules so that it is automatically loaded at boot time? You should see if that works first. It shouldn't need to be loaded twice.

Yes, I tryed, but it doesn't help

psmouse must be loaded and unloaded 2 times.. and also, I'm not only one with this bug :)
