Has anyone had any luck with a Y50 with an ALPS trackpad? I have been digging around for a modified VoodooPS2Controller for ALPS support but all of the the kexts that I've tried are for Dell notebooks (I think) and crash my hackintosh as I boot into El Capitan.
I don't know if we've seen a Y50 with ALPS. Post ioreg (see "Problem Reporting", post #1).

Apologies if I did not export it properly.

All Device Manager information on Windows shows that is ALPS, I could be wrong, but could not find anything in system information pertaining to Synaptics or Elan. Drivers, Model type, etc...

A google search for "AUI1629" shows it is likely ALPS...

There is the bpedman_merge branch in my own PS2 repo. You could try and build it... I suspect it won't work and will require changes. But if you have C++ experience, you can have at it...

Radut's may be even newer than the bpedman_merge branch (I may be forked from it).

I have no ALPS hardware, so I'm not tracking it...
