It can have any mode and at the same time the volume can be mounted read-only.

I forgot it's a freebsd-8.x at yours, I tried and  could not have a wacom deteced on a 8.x ...
The author promises to take a driver upstream in the bas esystem, but it seems to be a long way.
At the moment it seems that only Intuos/Graphire series are supported.

But somehow you get an error message. And this message is the one word: "Broken".
Look, it is explicitly noted in the x11-drivers/inpuit-wacom port option:
no uwacom.ko for 8.x.

There should be a uhid.ko on a 8.x?
