HP Omnibook XE2 and Vector Linux 3.0


I stuck the slackware live cd in and booted mr. omnibook and presto, everything worked, a little slow from the cd drive, but everything worked....

I installed Vector Linux 3.0 (another slackware linux) and gurgle...choke...we hate the touchpad now.

Am I missing something here, if slackware live liked it and vector linux didn't.... slackware live isnt' recommended for hard disk install so??? Ideas? The touchpad driver says it is not for x windows use...

I would stick the slackware live cd back in, and once you're in X, take a look at the XF86Config-4 file to see how those clever slackware people set your X up, I believe it's in the /etc/ directory. If you're using XFree v3, then the file would be XF86Config. (no "-4").
