xsetwacom cannot detect my bamboo tablet

I just bought wacom bambo cth-470. It works fine as a mouse replacement.
Unfortunately, xsetwacom cannot detect my device.
I want to disable touch on my tablet. AFAIK, i can only do that with xsetwacom.

I use xf86-input-wacom-0.21.0.
Here's the error on xorg log

(EE) stylus: usbDetect: can not ioctl version
(EE) stylus: cannot identify device class.
(II) UnloadModule: "wacom"
(EE) PreInit returned NULL for "stylus"

Any idea ?

What version of slackware?
Are you using a custom kernel?
Is wacom module loaded? (lsmod | grep wacom)
Does udev see the wacom in Xorg log? ([ 15.162] (II) config/udev: Adding input device Wacom Bamboo 2FG 6x8 Pen (/dev/input/event3) )
