Since you have the serial device, kernel and udev are fine. It looks like you're only missing the wacom Xorg driver - we don't have that in the repo currently.

Compiling it should be fairly easy with compiletc and Xorg-7.6-dev.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

I mean xf86-input-wacom. If using 7.5, then you need Xorg-7.5-dev ;)

as quoted from Xorg.log

Code: [Select]
(II) LoadModule: "wacom"
(WW) Warning, couldn't open module wacom
(II) UnloadModule: "wacom"
(EE) Failed to load module "wacom" (module does not exist, 0)

do i need to unzip the gz'd module. it was included in input-tablet-touchscreen

Then try adding a modprobe to your bootlocal.sh

Quote
/sbin/modprobe wacom

reboot to test
