I haven't used a KB Jam, but a couple of problems that I hit when
getting a Wacom to work (it was a while ago, different kernel and
distro, so this is from memory):
- I think I did have to turn off the simple mouse driver in the
kernel config, and use only the HID input/mouse driver, but it
sounds like your blacklist entry should be accomplishing the
same thing. It wouldn't hurt to turn off usbmouse in the kernel
config, just in case (you don't need it if you're using HID input).
- The modules have to be loaded before you start X, or X won't see them.
Now I just build all the mouse modules into the kernel so I can
plug in a usb mouse any time and have it work, but you can also
call modprobe directly or put it in your .xinitrc.
- I assume you already have the "second mouse on USB" entry in
your X86Config, right? I don't think you mentioned that.
- I had to modprobe evdev explicitly; loading the input drivers
didn't load evdev, but the wacom definitely needed it.
Is evdev loaded? That might explain those "No such device" messages.
