At least what I've tried on notebook. Compile it into kernel.
I afraid that you can't get touchpad working unless it's enabled.

No, you need the input device event interface (CONFIG_INPUT_EVDEV)  It
has nothing to do with MD/DM.

Yes, event interface you need as well.<br>
My problem was if compile kernel without devicemanager,<br>
mouse was working only in console (gpm), but not in X.<br>
Spent a lot of hours on that.<br>
Finally I've red dmesg and there it was.... no devman.<br>
If you have still problems, try to enable that.<br>
