Getting my Wacom Graphire 2 table to work as a tablet has always been
a pain in the ass with Red Hat/Fedora (By default it always acts like
a normal mouse). But after some editing of XF86Config I always get it
to work. However with Fedora Core Test 2 I can't get it to work. I've

identified correctly and the wacom module loads fine. When I cat
/dev/input3 I can see the output of my tablet when I move the pen.

Expected Results: Mouse cursor should move.

work in Fedora properly by default. The tablet exists for quite some
