Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 352811
Support for newer Wacom Serial Devices. WACF007 WACF008
Last modified: 2007-12-06 19:12:24 EST
Description of problem:
Our serial driver doesn't pick up the newer Wacom Serial (pnp) device. It
doesn't, by default, link actual device to anything in /dev (in particular
The work around is to use the setserial program to configure /dev/ttyS0 to point
to the device.
There's a patch upstream to prevent this work around and looks like it is slated
for 2.6.24 (it's in Linus's tree)
I've attached and tested the patch and wrote a udev rule to "Do the Right Thing".
Hope it helps...
