Description of problem:
The built-in toshiba_acpi module, despite providing adequate support for Toshiba fnfx functionality, does not enable Bluetooth support (i.e., there is no /proc/acpi/toshiba/bluetooth).
The URLs below have a working patch (as well as a completely new version of the toshiba_acpi.c file).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC4
2. Install fnfx, modprobe toshiba_acpi
3. Verify that there is no /proc/acpi/toshiba/bluetooth (even though fnfx is able to control display brightness, etc.)
please tell the developers of this code to push their changes upstream.
Fedora stays as close to the mainline kernel as possible. If we carried updates
to various drivers, we'd end up with something completely unmaintainable, and
impossible to convince upstream developers to look at.
I suppose this is not a "various driver", then...
Nevermind, I now know what the IBM stuff is for.
In the meantime, I documented my toshiba_acpi modifications at:
If you'd be so kind as to drop me a line telling me whom to contact or how to go
about doing it, I'll gladly get it into kernel.org...
that thinkpad patch got merged because without it, it prevents installation.
feature requests go upstream.
The upstream maintainer of Toshiba_ACPI is John Belmonte, so send a mail to him at
email@example.com and hopefully he'll merge your changes in for a future
upstream kernel release.
