No I did not remove the usbhid module. I just followed the directions listed at the somethinginteractive.com site, downloaded, compiled the utilities, and ran the cm15demo utility. I did nothing beyond that. The background info there is sketchy and I cannot follow code well enough to understand what was being done. I don't have it on the machine at this time. I had read something Thom wrote in the wiki about the beta and decided to blow the software away and reload to see what would happen if I were more patient.
Without anything installed and the CM15A connected I can do an lsusb and see the device if that is any help.
