Xorg 7.4 and ati-drivers 5.561, touchpad (synaptics)

Upgraded to xorg 7.4 and new ati drivers in hope of them working better as it actually says my model but apparently that only means the desktop model not the laptop one .. still crashes most of the time.
since downgrading was a pita now too i left it and use vesa for now since it's too much of a pain ..

one other thing was that my touchpad stopped workign (and my touchscreen won't really work either - cry) after some google search and dmesg | grep -i touch i found i got asynaptics touchpad and that someone else used that driver for it so i enabled it and put those options.
the scroll area thing doens't work yet but don't really care atm. also need some tweaking in regards to clicking by touching the area. with this just the buttons work .. but better than no mouse ..
