lspci
lsmod
lsusb
grep 8250 /usr/src/linux/.config

The gentoo wiki on the Wacom Tablet

Lenovo Thinkpad X61 Tablet, I am trying to get the screen digitizer to accept input from the digitizer pen.

It seems like it is in the kernel, and I have the xf86-input-wacom installed but lsmod doesn't show any evidence of 8250.

I made an attempt at installing the linuxwacom-module but it would not compile stating that I needed to:

Code:

# cd /usr/src/linux
# make .oldconfig
# make modules_prepare


This seems like something that would bork my kernel.

I am looking for advice on how to proceed.

<shot in the dark> Try modules. Firmware likes modules. Also, you may want to check http://www.kernel-seeds.org to see if you missed something.</shot in the dark>

Also stay away from the old linuxwacom-module. It is just that: old. It doesn't seem to play well with newer systems.

How can I find out if a specific module is supported by a kernel? I can't find the 8250_pnp module anywhere.


It is supposed to be in Device Drivers > Character Devices > Serial Devices but I can't find it. I think the problem is that it isn't compile in correctly. I have the wrong serial wacom drivers compiled....I hope.

bogamol,

CONFIG_SERIAL_8250 for 8250_core
CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_PNP for 8250_pnp

I mean in the configurator when running genkernel --menuconfig all

I can't find anything that has module options 8250_pnp or 8250_core.

I see that I have them configured as built in...must've been default.

I'm not sure I'm following what you're trying to explain, but for that selection to be selectable you have to set

[*] Configure standard kernel features (expert users) ---> in general setup, then it will show.

<*> 8250/16550 and compatible serial support │ │
│ │ [*] Console on 8250/16550 and compatible serial port │ │
│ │ <*> 8250/16550 PCI device support (NEW) │ │
│ │ <*> 8250/16550 PNP device support (NEW) │ │
│ │ < > 8250/16550 PCMCIA device support │ │
│ │

If this isn't what you're trying to convey, can you be a little more specific :?:

That's what I was trying to get to in order to modularize them per TheDoctor. Thanks.


Hmm. No luck.

Is it possible that this is related to another Error that I got when I ran Xorg -configure?

Code:
Number of created screens does not match number of detected devices. Configuration failed.
Maybe something else is missing? I don't know where else to look though. :/

bogamol,

Did you try entering your lspci -n info here

http://www.kernel-seeds.org/working.html
or
http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/ :?:

No I did not. I will do that soon. Thanks. i remember doing that before on a previous iteration of my attempt to get Gentoo linux running.

So far, I've gotten everything else going except the digitizer, so I am excited about my progress.

Thanks for all the help. I'll post back soon and let you know if it was solved or not. :D

I found some information on why I am having the problem I am having... I think. Since my Wacom is a serial Wacom and since the serial wacom was removed from the xf86-input-wacom. It doesn't work.

Here is the solution that I am going to try, but I'm going to try it using my Debian install and then if it works I try to fixify my Gentoo install the same way. Updates to follow.

And how it works? Can you compile the x86-input-wacom also for gentoo?

I have a X41t. My only solution to use the Tablet is a xorg.conf.
