    How To: Alps touchpad on 2.6.10 Hoary

    At the request of somebody I helped earlier.

    % sudo aptitude install linux-source-2.6.10 kernel-package xorg-driver-synaptics
    % cd /usr/src
    % sudo tar -x -j -f linux-source-2.6.10.tar.bz2
    % cd linux-source-2.6.10
    % gunzip -c /usr/share/doc/xorg-driver-synaptics/alps.patch.gz | sudo patch -p1
    % sudo cp /boot/config-2.6.10-5-386 ./.config ## or whatever you are currently running--note that there are two dots there, since the file is <dot>config
    % sudo make-kpkg --us --uc --initrd --append_to_version "-5-386-alps" kernel_image kernel_headers kernel_source
    % cd ..
    % sudo dpkg -i kernel*alps*deb

    Then just use the template in /usr/share/doc/xorg-driver-synaptics/README.alps for your xorg.conf. To disable tap-to-click while preserving the scrolling behavior on the right edge of the pad, try setting MaxTapTime to 0.
