Here is the 'tail' from running 'strace modprobe -v toshiba_acpi':

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-08-04 15:21:57 EDT
What model laptop are you trying to run this on ?
Comment 3 Tom London 2005-08-04 16:22:05 EDT
Toshiba Tecra M2-S530

This worked until the update of 7/14.  Still 'broken'.
Comment 4 Len Brown 2005-08-04 16:27:00 EDT
> toshiba_acpi: Using generic hotkey driver

Bzzzt!  Wrong answer:-)

Please build with CONFIG_ACPI_HOTKEY=n
(the default in 2.6.13)
This EXPERIMENTAL driver is still under development
and should not yet be shipped as part of Fedora.
Comment 5 Dave Jones 2005-08-05 18:33:02 EDT
*confused*. This bug is filed against rawhide/FC5, and comment #1 suggests
you're using those kernels.

Yet in those kernels...

# CONFIG_ACPI_HOTKEY is not set

and its been this way since July 13th, which is roughly when that option
appeared iirc.


I'm guessing you're testing this on FC4 kernels now ? (Which are broken, I'll
fix it in the next update).
Comment 6 Tom London 2005-08-06 14:19:28 EDT
No, I'm testing this on Rawhide kernels.  Current running one is
2.6.12-1.1451_FC5 (still fails with messages as in #1). (I am downlownloading 
2.6.12-1.1452_FC5 now.)

grep HOTKEY /boot/config*1451*
# CONFIG_ACPI_HOTKEY is not set

July 13 is roughly when this stopped working.

What additional info can I provide to help?
Comment 7 Tom London 2005-08-18 11:30:26 EDT
This started working again this morning with 2.6.12-1.1492_FC5.

Didn't see anything in the posted changelog; was this fixed in 2.6.13-rc6-git9?
Comment 8 Dave Jones 2005-08-18 12:20:24 EDT
looks like it. there were a bunch of acpi hotkey fixes there.
