Description Radek Bíba 2005-08-31 16:35:47 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
