1.163.1. RHBA-2011:0128: bug fix and enhancement update

An updated wdaemon package that fixes a bug and adds an enhancement is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
wdaemon is a helper application that emulates persistent input devices for Wacom tablets. This allows such devices to be plugged in and unplugged while an X Window System server is running.
This update fixes the following bug:
* On a tablet PC that is detected as a tablet by wdaemon, the presence of a serial tablet caused the "wacom -a" command to fail with the following error:
Error retrieving device id: Invalid argument
With this update, an upstream patch has been applied to correct the detection of such device, and running the above command now produces the expected results. ( BZ#504332)
As well, this update adds the following enhancement:
* The wdaemon package has been updated to add the support for Wacom Cintiq 21UX2 devices. ( BZ#652740)
Users of Wacom Cintiq 21UX2 devices are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which adds this enhancement.
