Kernel 2.6.22 changed thinkpad module name/location
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:12 EST
In Fedora 7 2.6.22 based kernel two changes for thinkpad:
1. Module name changed from ibm_acpi to thinkpad_acpi
2. Module location changed from kernel/drivers/acpi/ to
The immediate result is that rc.sysinit file that loads the
acpi modules from kernel/drivers/acpi/ directory does not
load the thinkpad_acpi module. Also, if people put option
lines into the modprobe.conf for ibm_acpi they will not be
understood, although this is not that important.
Please reassign to initscripts if the location of the module
will stay in the misc directory.
