Description Radek Bíba 2005-08-31 13:17:48 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc3 Firefox/1.0.6 Description of problem: With kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3, toshiba_acpi is working, but after upgrade to rnel-2.6.12-1.1376_FC3 and reboot, it fails to load, saying No such device. FnFXd, a daemon for managing the Fn key, used for brightness control, sleeping and so on doesn't work either, since it requires toshiba_acpi to be loaded. When I boot the previous version, kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3, the module works and so does FnFXd. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kernel-2.6.12-1.1376_FC3 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Grab a recent Toshiba laptop (with Toshiba BIOS) 2. Install kernel-2.6.12-1.1376_FC3, 3. Reboot 3. when using FnFX, an error message will be printed as soon as it starts, otherwise search for /proc/acpi/toshiba - should be loaded out of thebox, or try modprobe toshiba_acpi Actual Results: toshiba_acpi isn't loaded, saying No such device Expected Results: toshiba_acpi just works with a Toshiba laptop, as did previously Additional info:

I've cloned this bug for FC4, which has the same problem with kernel-2.6.12-1.1447_FC4, Bug #167281
Comment 3 Mace Moneta 2005-09-15 19:13:28 EDT
I checked kernel-2.6.12-1.1378_FC3 (since CVS noted the linux-2.6-acpi-rollup-20050902.patch is included), and the same problem exists.
Comment 4 Mace Moneta 2005-09-15 20:29:22 EDT
Kernel bug 4953 appears to address this: http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4953 There is a patch (for 2.6.13-rc6), as well as a workaround (adding kernel parameter acpi_specific_hotkey).
Comment 5 Radek Bíba 2005-09-19 03:05:03 EDT
Confirming, kernel parameter acpi_specific_hotkey added to kernel (2.6.12-1.1376_FC3) command line solves the problem for the time being. Thanks Mace!
Comment 6 Dave Jones 2005-09-23 21:53:25 EDT
fixed in cvs. will be in next update.
Comment 7 Fedora Update System 2005-10-20 10:30:07 EDT
From User-Agent: XML-RPC kernel-2.6.12-1.1380_FC3 has been pushed for FC3, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
Comment 8 Radek Bíba 2005-10-20 12:55:26 EDT
Confirming fix, thanks. acpi_specific_hotkey is no longer needed.
