7.271. wdaemon

Updated wdaemon packages that fix one bug and add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The wdaemon packages contain a daemon to wrap input driver hotplugging in the X.Org implementation of the X Window System server. The wdaemon packages emulate virtual input devices to avoid otherwise non-persistent configuration of Wacom tablets to persist across device removals.

Bug Fix

Due to the broken %postun scriptlet, an attempt to uninstall wdaemon caused an error message to appear. This error message also occurred during the wdaemon update because the old package is removed during the update. Consequently, the wdaemon service was not restarted after the update. The %postun scriptlet has been fixed and wdaemon works as expected in this situation.


This enhancement adds support for emulation of the Wacom Intuos5 tablet series.
All users of wdaemon are advised to upgrade to these updated packages which fix this bug and add this enhancement.
