Description of problem:
As far as I can tell, I need the evdev kernel module in order to be able to use my wacom tablet properly, but it does not seem to exist in the kernel rpm or in the linuxwacom-0.6.6 rpm. If I have to build linuxwacom from source, what's the point of distributing the rpms? Or did something happen that makes this no longer necessary?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

The evdev driver is part of the kernel rpm. It may or may not be compiled as a
module, but it's not something we would disable, and you should never have to
load it as a module. If you have /dev/input/eventX devices, you know the evdev
driver is working. Furthermore, to ease X configuration, the wacom rpm installs
a udev rule that should make the event device corresponding to your wacom tablet
available as /dev/input/wacom.
