Description Alan Edwards 2006-10-24 12:48:07 UTC
Most recent kernel where this bug did not occur:2.6.15-r7

Distribution: Gentoo 2005.0 upgraded to 2006.1

Hardware Environment: AMD 64 3500+

Software Environment:Portage 2.1.1-r1 (default-linux/amd64/2005.0, gcc-4.1.1,
glibc-2.4-r3, 2.6.17-gentoo-r8 x86_64)

Problem Description:

I am running a Gentoo Linux distribution and have successfully used the Wacom
Volito2 
tablet upto and including the 2.6.15-r7 kernel by following the steps at
http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-2478951.html#2478951.  After upgrading to
successive kernels (2.6.16-r7, 2.6.17-r4 and currently 2.6.17-r8), the tablet
does not work.  In all cases, I have copied my kernel config and have the
following options set in the kernel config file:
 
CONFIG_USB_WACOM=m
CONFIG_USB_ARCH_HAS_HCD=y
CONFIG_USB_ARCH_HAS_OHCI=y
CONFIG_USB_ARCH_HAS_EHCI=y
CONFIG_USB=m
CONFIG_USB_EHCI_HCD=m
CONFIG_USB_OHCI_HCD=m
CONFIG_USB_HID=m
CONFIG_USB_HIDINPUT=y
CONFIG_USB_SERIAL=m

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

When I run kernel 2.6.15-r7, dmesg produces:
usb 3-2: new low speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
input Wacom Volito2 4x5 as /class/input/input2

wacdump /dev/input/wacom also works ok.
 
When I run kernel 2.6.17-r8, dmesg produces:
usb 3-2: new low speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 2
usb 3-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
input Wacom Volito2 4x5 as /class/input/input2
 
wacdump /dev/input/wacom does not work.
 
Expected Results:  
When wacdump is working (under the 2.6.15 kernel, I invoke wacdump with wacdump
/dev/input/wacom and get:

Searching the Gentoo forums, I have discovered that there is a workaround which
consists of copying the following two files from the
/usr/portage/distfiles/linuxwacom-0.7.4-3 to /usr/src/linux/drivers/usb/input
and recompiling the modules:

hid-core.c
wacom.c

I have put the original versions (which don't work) at the following link
with .old extensions and the files which do work with the original .c extension
