I've been trying to get Colors! and the Wacom
Bamboo tablet working for my 2 nieces for Christmas.

I've been trying to build the driversr from the
latest linuxwacom sources at:

Following the mini-HOWTO from

I've been able to get /./configure --enable-wacom'
to complete.  However, when I 'make' the build fails
in the wacom kernel driver module section with errors
like this:

   make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/olpc/linuxwacom-0.8.8-10/src/xdrv'
   Making all in 2.6.30

   ....and many more lines of same...

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I was
hoping to give my nieces the 10.1.3 upgrade and
the working (again) wacom table for drawing (I
had it working with 802).

Thanks in advance,

P.S. The activity thread I started with is at
      and forward...
