Hello people

I just upgraded my kernel from 2.6.27-r7 to 2.6.27-r8, during this
process I decided to start over on my config, setting it up from scratch
instead of reusing the .config. I pretty much set the new kernel up like
the old one, except for a few things.

However, now my touchpad acts really strange from time to time, nothing
really specific, it's ONLY the touchpad, so i can connect an USB mouse,
but this is hardly an ideal solution.

The strangeness is that the mouse jumps all over the screen when I try
to move it, and clicks all over the place, making for really really
anoying stuff.

When the issue occurs the following shows up in
/var/log/everything/current (equivelant to /var/log/messages):

Feb 26 22:42:52 [kernel] [  448.018056] psmouse.c: Mouse at
isa0060/serio1/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 2 bytes away.
Feb 26 22:42:54 [kernel] [  450.061023] psmouse.c: failed to re-enable
mouse on isa0060/serio1
Feb 26 22:42:54 [kernel] [  450.065731] psmouse.c: resync failed,
issuing reconnect request

I can apply any information needed, but didn't want this message to get
TOO long.

With hopes of help

letdown of anticipating not anticipating anticipation of some future
