I have a Kohjinsha SH6 which has a touch screen with the Penmount PM6000 
chipset.  I am unable to calibrate the touch screen, and input seems 
rather erratic.

The calibration programs (gCalib, std-calib) in 
does not react to touch screen events at all.  The penmount driver in 
that package does not load at all:

(II) LoadModule: "penmount"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input//
(II) Module penmount: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
     compiled for, module version = 1.3.0
     Module class: X.Org XInput Driver
     ABI class: X.Org XInput driver, version 0.5
(EE) module ABI major version (0) doesn't match the server's version (2)
(II) UnloadModule: "penmount"
(II) Unloading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input//
(EE) Failed to load module "penmount" (module requirement mismatch, 0)

The xserver-xorg-input-penmount driver from Ubuntu loads OK, but 
calibration is still unresponsive.

  Ubuntu ver. 8.04
  Linux kernel ver. 2.6.24-16-generic
  xserver-xorg ver. 7.3+10ubuntu10
  xserver-xorg-input-penmount ver. 1.2.1-2

Penmount driver details from /proc/bus/input/devices:

I: Bus=0003 Vendor=14e1 Product=6000 Version=0001
P: Phys=usb-0000:00:1d.3-2/input0
S: Sysfs=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.3/usb4/4-2/4-2:1.0/input/input2

Do I have to wait for penmount to release a new driver, or is there a 
way of compiling their version with the current  Some source code 
is available in the tar file referenced above.
