I manage to install DSL on a LCD-Panel PC with integrated USB touchscreen.( a PPC-7365F from Protech Systems, 256 mb RAM, 128 mb CFdisk, proc. VIA C3, chipset VIA VT8606, Touchscreen 5-wire Analog Resistive USB1.1).

for information, my company try to use W-CE but it doesn't satisfy  so, as enthousiat linux's user, I manage to demontrate the Linux's superiority. Today everything works fine except the pointer. It works with a mouse but with the touchscreen not.

At start, the touchscreen is sawn as "PANJIT touchscreen  on /dev/input/mice".

With Xvesa, the touchscreen is active but not calibrated, the use of the touchscreen is erratic. (swapXY, works as a touchpad (incémental) not a touchscreen (absolue)) I see the used module is mousedev.

Question1:  Is it a way to change parameters for it, to "configure" Xvesa?  or the module mousedev ?

I Tried XFree86 to have more config possibilities. but I failed with any modules in the DSL-XFree86 (probably for serial devices) so I tried with elousb, LinuxUSBpublicELO , Unified_USB,   but each fails to be incorporated because "don't indicate the kernel the module is compiled for" (or anythink like that).
On so a system, I don't think to compile anything and I never do  any exo-compiling on a system to another.

Question2: Is there any suitable module in the DSL-XFree86 package?  or is it a way to force the module to charge (with some danger??)
