I am currently running both Gentoo 2005.0 (stage 1 install) & Fedora Core 3 on my Dell D610, but I've been having issues with my trackpoint and its corresponding buttons not functioning in kernel 2.6.11 (note: the trackpad and its buttons work fine). Under Fedora, I have tried kernel-2.6.11-1.1177_FC4.src.rpm (built from source), kernel-2.6.11-1.14_FC3.rpm (installed from yum), as well as the vanilla kernel-184.108.40.206 from kernel.org; in gentoo I've tried the latest gentoo-sources vanilla kernel (linux-2.6.11-gentoo-r5). All have issues with the trackpoint. I have rebuilt the kernels with my .config files that work perfectly in 2.6.10, so it must be a change in the kernel tree. I saw one patch, I beleive it's for the IBM Thinkpads, that allegedly corrects the issue, however the patch broke my kernel-source in gentoo (it wouldn't compile the patched files). Does anyone know of any potential fixes? Besides this issue, the D610 works great in Linux.
