Description Harald Hoyer 2007-07-05 08:02:05 EDT
udev has changed the rule syntax.
See /usr/share/doc/udev-*/RELEASE-NOTES and man udev(7)

Please review your udev rules and change:

Comment 1 Aristeu Rozanski 2007-07-23 13:58:54 EDT
Revised, should be ok on latest package in rawhide
Comment 2 A. Lok 2007-07-24 06:50:42 EDT
Sorry to say, but the latest version in rawhide (linuxwacom-
doesn't work for me.

The /dev/input/wacom symlink isn't created, nor the device-specific symlink in
the wacom-tablets directory.

I don't really know anything about udev-rules, but if I remove the
KERNEL=="event*" from the lines like below, it does work.

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", KERNEL=="event*", ATTR{idVendor}=="056a",

Does that parameter matter?
Comment 3 Fedora Update System 2007-07-25 01:08:21 EDT
linuxwacom- has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
Comment 4 A. Lok 2007-07-25 10:46:05 EDT
Just tried "linuxwacom-" on my laptop (F7 i386). The new udev-rule
now creates an 
"/dev/input/wacom" symlink
"/dev/input/wacom-tablets" directory with the folowing symlinks:

So the good news is that the udev-rules seem to work fine.

The bad news is that the wacom-driver for X doesn't load anymore... But I'll put
that in another bug-report ( #219060 )
