tablet kernel driver problem?



i suddenly realized yesterday that my aiptek HP-12000U tablet is
supported under FC3.  gads! i never would have guessed.

so i plugged it in and it sort of works.  but, not quite right.  the
cursor disappears frequently and it seems to move around randomly when i
start the pen on the tablet.  i'm trying to say that i can't judge WHERE
it's going to start it's stroke when i press the pen to the tablet.
this is all in gaim, BTW.

i looked at the log and i see these errors:

Dec 22 21:14:29 junior kernel: usb 1-2.4: new low speed USB device using
address 6
Dec 22 21:14:29 junior kernel: usbhid: probe of 1-2.4:1.0 failed with

sure enough there is an evdev.h file, so i presume it's in the kernel:

/lib/modules/2.6.9-1.681_FC3/build/include/config/input/evdev.h

i get this with a lsusb, so i think that the hid probe fail might be
related:

[root junior input]# lsusb
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 051d:0002 American Power Conversion Back-UPS Pro

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0409:0059 NEC Corp. HighSpeed Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000


i'm sort of at a loss as to how to approach this problem, and i'm not
quite sure what the log messages imply.

sure would appreciate your collective wisdom, my friends!
