I have Fedora Core 2 installed on a Sony Vaio v505 laptop. I use a USB mouse and it works great, however, I keep brushing against the stupid touchpad and it messes up what I'm trying to type. The BIOS doesn't offer a way to disable it either.
What I need to do is to completely remove the trackpad. I have searched the web but there is little support out there for FC2 since the 2.6 kernel has an integrated synaptics driver. I have also tried to remove it from my xorg.conf file but there is only one mouse listed there. If I remove that mouse, the GDM doesn't even boot.
I *do not* want to fix the driver, or do anything like that. I just want to completely remove it from my system. Does anyone have any ideas? I know this is probably so simple but it's definitely harder than it seems.
