    Hi
    Excellent Now the bad news.... (well not really), you will need to visit the repo and grab the updated rpm that matches your kernel if/when Tumbleweed gets a new kernel... the older kernel module will keep working (will go into weak-updates) until you update. You will need to keep an eye on that kernel link to see when/how it gets accepted into the mainline kernel.

    On that laptop, I actually added your Repo and installed it that way, it should stay updated that way, right?

    Hi
    It will, but it's my testing repo and wouldn't want you to suck anything down unexpectedly Disable, then after kernel update, enable, update the kmp and then disable again would be my recommendation.

    There can also be a delay until it gets updated, since home repositories are down the pecking order when it comes to build requirements.

    I'm having the same issue as lex with the lenovo trackpad and would very much like to get your RPM since compiling a kernel is, for now, above my level of proficiency. However, the link doesn't work. The link to the kernel module build works fine. Any help would be appreciated

    If you go into Yast and add Malcolm's testing repository by this URL:
    https://download.opensuse.org/reposi...USE_Tumbleweed

    And then search for ELAN, you can add it that way.
