Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 293761
hal-info incorrectly lists Thinkpad T61
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:52:18 EST
Description of problem:
The above URL identifies a patch submission that has been merged in, and is
present in Fedora's hal-info. It is buggy:
- the submitter uses his system.hardware.product string, 766314G, which
does not uniquely identify the T61 (mine is 7658CTO)
- furthermore, the patch incorrectly uses 'system.hardware.version' rather than
Please find attached a patch that changes the Lenovo quirk file so that it keys
in on system.hardware.product="Thinkpad T61" instead.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Backlight not re-enabled
Created attachment 197741 [details]
Patch to correct identification of Thinkpad T61
Note that with the current Rawhide kernel, the modification allows the laptop to
suspend, but now it won't resume -- might be a kernel problem. Without s3_mode
the laptop will wake up immediately (and backlight is off); with s3_bios the
laptop will wake up immediately and the backlight is reenabled.
This is wrong; IIRC a Thinkpad T61 can come with different video cards and then
you need different quirks. Btw, in the future please send patches to the hal
list instead of RH Bugzilla. Thanks!
I did list the upstream bug entry as well, but sorry for the duplication.
Good point that T61 comes with different video cards, but the entry I referred
to is still wrong: instead of s.h.v it should have said s.h.p (version is just
"Thinkpad T61", it's the product key that has the different product numbers)
