Odd, thanks for the reports!  I already fixed the Wiki instructions.

I'm not sure what's different about my system, it's mostly stock 767.  I had
previously installed pgf's wacom.ko using insmod:


to /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/usb/input/

However, I assumed that the yum install linuxwacom overwrote it.  Perhaps
not though, I'm new to Linux kernel modules.  Try grabbing and installing
that kernel module, and see if it magically works.
