Hello,

I'm installing a wacom tablet, following the instructions here:

http://gentoo-wiki.com/HOWTO_Wacom_Tablet

Problem:

The tablet does not show up in /proc/bus/input/devices ->

cat /proc/bus/input/devices 
I: Bus=0011 Vendor=0001 Product=0001 Version=ab41
N: Name="AT Translated Set 2 keyboard"
P: Phys=isa0060/serio0/input0
H: Handlers=kbd event0 
B: EV=120013 
B: KEY=4 2000000 3802078 f840d001 f2ffffdf ffefffff ffffffff fffffffe 
B: MSC=10 
B: LED=7 

I: Bus=0011 Vendor=0002 Product=0001 Version=0001
N: Name="PS/2 Logitech Mouse"
P: Phys=isa0060/serio1/input0
H: Handlers=mouse0 event1 
B: EV=7 
B: KEY=70000 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 
B: REL=3 

Background:

The tablet is plugged into a NEC usb controller card.  dmesg shows

ehci_hcd 0000:00:0a.2: NEC Corporation USB 2.0
ehci_hcd 0000:00:0a.2: new USB bus registered, assigned bus number 1
ehci_hcd 0000:00:0a.2: irq 11, io mem 0xe0000000
ehci_hcd 0000:00:0a.2: park 0
ehci_hcd 0000:00:0a.2: USB 2.0 initialized, EHCI 1.00, driver 10 Dec 2004
hub 1-0:1.0: USB hub found
hub 1-0:1.0: 5 ports detected
usbcore: registered new driver wacom
drivers/usb/input/wacom.c: v1.43:USB Wacom Graphire and Wacom Intuos tablet driver

The wacom driver is compiled into the kernel (last line of dmesg
output, above)

I have recompiled xorg with the sdk use flag and emerged
linuxwacom-0.6.7. 

The following usb related kernel options are set:

CONFIG_USB_ARCH_HAS_HCD=y
CONFIG_USB_ARCH_HAS_OHCI=y
CONFIG_USB=y
CONFIG_USB_DEVICEFS=y
CONFIG_USB_EHCI_HCD=y
CONFIG_USB_WACOM=y
CONFIG_USB_MON=y

The following are the hotplug settings for the kernel:

CONFIG_HOTPLUG=y
# CONFIG_HOTPLUG_PCI is not set

The kernel event detection stuff is built in:

CONFIG_KOBJECT_UEVENT=y
CONFIG_PREVENT_FIRMWARE_BUILD=y

Can anyone suggest what may be wrong?

Thanks,

Roger Mason
