Kim, another test case for our one hour smoke test...

It seems hal does not identify the GS as an "input.mouse" or "input.tablet" device any more. Only "input". My guess is some capability bits in the kernel driver are missing.

I was under the impression the GS worked perfectly in joyride a few months ago. We must have lost some bits when we reverted and reapplied patches a few times.

dilinger has a patch in olpc-2.6's master branch.

Please close this bug as soon as the backport to the stable branch reaches an Update.1 build.

Please do not close. The current patch causes a more severe regression. I think we should revert it ASAP.

In the above comment, I was referring to #6079.

mstone and blaketh have been working on a patch for this; I got to try it out today and it was great.

Hey, is the stable patch going into Update.1 or what?

comment:8 Changed 9 years ago by mstone

The software for Update.1 is done - candidate-703 is it - and the final release will be made when the release notes have reached an adequate degree of quality. Please help improve the release notes.

Given that tablet mode is going away with new hardware, there's not much point in supporting it in the old hardware. Closing..
