Udev error message
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:47 EST
Description of problem:
Udev complaints about a misformed rule. I have a Graphire 4 tablet attached to
the USB port. At the very start, when the kenrel is uncmpressing and just before
calling on udev, I get an error about a device refusing to take an address.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always, every boot.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attach a Wacom tablet to the PC
2. Boot the system
3. Watch the error message.
In Core 5 this was due to the default rule using double = signs and was solved
by having only one, however this "fix" does not work on Core 6.
There doesn't seem to be an update for the linuxwacom rpm,
the 0.76 version supports the fc6 kernel.
Until there is an updated linuxwacom rpm with the correct udev/rules.d and with
properly configured source (the wacomcpl tool you definitely need for your
graphire 4 tablet isn't in and the buttons on your tablet do work in gnome, but
do not in kde and some other things...like the correct xorg config and so) the
people will need to use workarounds.
I've make a new linuxwacom rpm.
It isn't accepted yet as an update by fedora, and I hope you are willing to
try it and post a review about it.
Gian, there's an updated version available on FC6 testing updates. Please try it
and report here the results.
Actually it also happened with F7, but with the recent udev update for F7 it is
no longer the case, thanks.
