I have a Dell Laditude D531 that doesn't have the touchpad working.

I have the evdev driver, synaptics driver, and everything with I2C enabled. Touchpad doesn't work still. I have SMBus enabled, touchpad still doesn't work.

As you can see, my SMBus controller doesn't have the smbus driver from the kernel.

My kernel .config:

According to Dell, this is an fairly old laptop that uses a ps/2 port touchpad and not an i2c touchpad.

Having PS2 turned off probably won't work.
Code:
CONFIG_INPUT_MOUSE=y
# CONFIG_MOUSE_PS2 is not set
