I just upgraded from F8 to rawhide and after a reboot, I got an error
with respawning too fast. I also have a USB attached to it. So in my
situation the information for synaptics needs changed in order to load X.
I just deleted xorg.conf and was able to start x without a config file.
Since system-config-display --reconfig came up in GUI but no pointers,
either the synaptics or the USB worked through s-c-display the tool was
Now since I am in a working X with no configuration file, I am able to
use the tool. Attached is the rawhide xorg.log. The scrolling works on
the USB mouse but not on the synaptics pad.
