I have found that the serial port (ttyS0 or ttyUSB0) works differently in 11.3,
but I think this is a change lower down. For example the serial connected
Garmin GPS no longer sends data to the host computer; the fix for this is to
disable modem controls with stty -F /dev/ttyUSB0 9600 clocal - I've not yet
found a way to make this happen automatically. I'm assuming the X server hangs
waiting for input from the Wacom serial pad.

If someone could explain how to run the equivalent to "stty -F /dev/ttyS0
clocal" before the X server starts, I can test if this is the solution to non
working serial Wacoms in 11.3

I have a non working in 11.3 Wacom Intuos serial pad, if you enable it in
xorg.conf, on restarting the X server, it just stops working.

--> ( [details]
modified /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-wacom.conf

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/4.3; Linux) KHTML/4.3.5
(like Gecko) SUSE

When I configure my Intuos 2 Serial (not USB!), the complete X11 input devices
can't be used anymore (touchpad and keyboard). The tablet itselve also doesn't

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add the attached 20-wacom.conf into /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d (you needn't add a
grphics tablet, it also happens when nothing is attached)
2. Restart X

Actual Results:
keyboard, mouse and so on will no longer work, ssh access over netword works

Expected Results:
X should work like before and wacom tablet should also be useable

It worked with 11.2 on my ASUS notebook, where it doesn't work now with 11.3.
do not have logfiles from the time I've used 11.2 on it and I don't want to
reinstall for a simple Xorg.0.log, so I've taken the Xorg.0.log from my Dell
notebook where still 11.2 is installed (and will stay as long I can't use the
tablet). It also doesn't depend on the Serial-USB Adapter, I also can
the problem on a PentiumII with 11.3 and a serial port.
