Comment 2 Aristeu Rozanski 2006-11-29 12:13:39 EST
alee, please test this patch. They seem to have this fixed in 0.7.6-* version
but there're a lot of other changes in the same patch, so I'm going by the safe way.

Comment 9 RHEL Product and Program Management 2007-04-17 17:08:45 EDT
Although this bugzilla was approved for RHEL 4.5, we were unable
to resolve it in time to be included in the release.  Therefore
it is now proposed for RHEL 4.6.
Comment 10 RHEL Product and Program Management 2007-05-09 04:46:01 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.  Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products.  This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
Comment 11 Aristeu Rozanski 2007-08-02 15:40:14 EDT
This is fixed in current linuxwacom-config package, but this package won't be
included in RHEL, so no errata.
