Description of problem:
Trying to utilize my wacom digitizer as a digitizer and _not_ a mouse
crashes X. This happens when X tries to load the driver named
'wacom_drv.o' which is named as just 'wacom' in the xorg.conf file.
This is a bug that is hard to figure out when migrating a setup since
the log files from X are completely silent about what happened.
The reason for the crash is that a compile option is wrong and one is
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure wacom drivers in xorg.conf
2. Start X.
Actual Results: X crashes "signal 11"
Expected Results: X starts and wacom driver works
This is bug would most likely affect IA64, PPC and anything which is
not i386 software.
The wacom driver isn't working because it is missing some 64 bit
Adding "-D_XSERVER64" and changing "__i386__" to "__amd64__" in
src/Makefile.in solves the problem in the 0.6.5 version from
I guess this can be detected automatically somehow but I have no idea
why it isn't now or how to do it. Please fix it.
There are again newer versions upstream and fixes proposed. See bug 144025.
Closing as a duplicte of bug #144025. Please try the new RPM
