Advisory: RHBA-2012:0801-2
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2012-06-20
Last updated on: 2012-06-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6)

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6)

Details

Updated xorg-x11-drv-wacom packages that fix multiple bugs and add various
enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The xorg-x11-drv-wacom packages provide an X Window System input device driver
that allows the X server to handle Wacom tablets with extended functionality.

The xorg-x11-drv-wacom package has been upgraded to upstream version 0.13.0,
which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version.
(BZ#752642)

This update also fixes the following bug:

* Prior to this update, the xorg-x11-drv-wacom driver allowed users only to use
a pointer-focusing model. As a consequence, a dual-monitor layout on certain
hardware could lead to an offset between the pen position and the cursor
position. This update modifies the mapping offset in screen mode to provide new
multi-screen handling. (BZ#734256)

* Prior to this update, xorg-x11-drv-wacom driver could, under certain
circumstances, encounter an "off by one" error in the array access of files and
a null dereference. This update modifies the array indexing and checks for the
right allocation before dereferencing. (BZ#802385)

This update also adds the following enhancement:

* This update adds xorg-x11-drv-wacom to HPC Compute Node ( v. 6 ). Now,
xorg-x11-drv-wacom is a dependency for the gnome-settings-daemon and the
control-center. (BZ#801319)

* This update adds support for the Wacom Intuos4 Wireless device. (BZ#818038)

All users of xorg-x11-drv-wacom are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which add this enhancement.
