status update- today i saw that a new linux wacom driver has been released.I will now have to install vector linux on my main machine and try to compile the new driver.
My chances are either they fixed it in the driver,or they fixed it in xorg or the kernel...
SO,to get higher chances,i would have to use a version of VL that has a newer/different version of xorg and kernel than the ones found in 59gold.
IF any developer provides me with information about some VL testing release untill the end of the day,i will gladly try to compile the new driver there. Now i read that soho version of 59 has xorg7.3 (newer than std59?) - to get that version i would need money,something i dont have right now.
MY other way is to go with std59gold again and if i encounter the same problems (patching in order to compile,after compile,no pressure sensitivity picked,no expresskeys working),i will try to upgrade xorg and recompile wacomdriver
if it all gets right and everything works fine as it does under ubuntu and mandriva,i promise to make a package of the driver and add a howto set wacom tablets to vec's wiki or howto forum.
i really need my wacom under linux, guys
EDIT: alright i saw that vector light has x11-7.3http://numsum.com/spreadsheet/show/58651
would it be alright if i build the wacom driver on it? OR a build on 59gold would be better for the comunity?
help me out here guys, i have no idea what package versions there are in the stable releases.
