Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 219060
Update to 0.7.6-4
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:51 EST
Versions prior to 0.7.6-3 have an idiotic feature where they encode vendor id
and serial number information in the high bits of some axes, rendering tablets
nonfuncitonal with most applications that don't know about this "feature".
Upgrading will also fix rotation for tabletPCs, which is critical. Will attach
spec file and updated build patches.
Actually, just grab the srpm:
Has updated spec and patches.
Version 0.7.8 has recently been released. Please can this be updated soonish... :)
Will an update cascade to F7/FC6 machines as well? I had to manually install
v0.7.6 in one FC6 box and I'm currently running (manually installed) v0.7.8 on
my main F7 system.
It's updated to 0.7.6 and now I'm working on 0.7.8. Please test and open new
tickets in case of problems.
Will 0.7.8 include wacomcpl?
for work done on this.
Really, this should be a dup of bug 220706, given the amount of activity there.
(Though why that was not marked a dup of this ages ago, before the activity and
the duplication of effort is unclear.)

Yes, I'll. I'll also merge the changes proposed in some package review tickets
to the spec file.
linuxwacom-0.7.6.4-2.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

The X driver 'wacom' doesn't load with linuxwacom-0.7.6.4-2.fc7 (i386).
I added the following to my xorg.conf:
InputDevice "Stylus" "SendCoreEvents"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/wacom"
Option "type" "stylus"
Option "USB" "on"
I noticed after restarting X that the stylus wasn't in absolute mode. Xorg.0.log
shows the following:
(II) LoadModule: "wacom"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input//wacom_drv.so
dlopen: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input//wacom_drv.so: undefined symbol:
(EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input//wacom_drv.so
(II) UnloadModule: "wacom"
(EE) Failed to load module "wacom" (loader failed, 7)

my xorg.conf file
You do not need to edit your xorg.conf file. The wacom driver is included in the
kernel. The linuxwacom package provides additional functionality.
You should remove the above section and if your tablet still fails then file a
new bug rather than adding to an existing one.

Afaik I _do_ need to edit my xorg.conf file, because I want to use this extra
functionality. Else it just functions as a normal mouse.

I don't have any problems whatsoever with the wacom kernel-module, but with the
X wacom driver. (or whatever it is called) Yes my wacom functions without adding
anything to xorg.conf, but only as a mouse. It even functions without the whole
linux-wacom package, but still only as a mouse.
Or is it now somehow possible to use my tablet in absolute mode without
modifying anything to my xorg.conf? That would be new to me.
On second hand, the "__stack_chk_fail_local"-problem I added here, doesn't
totally fit under the problem of this bug titled as "Update to 0.7.6-4".
I've created an new bug for this problem:
Sorry for the confusion.
