Description dominique 2010-04-29 15:34:55 UTC
Description of problem:
I test F13, and in the boot.log I have this message:

Démarrage de fnfxd : modprobe: FATAL: Error inserting toshiba_acpi (/lib/modules/ No such device

FnFX Daemon v0.3 (c) 2003, 2004 Timo Hoenig <thoenig@nouse.net>

fatal error: Could open /proc/acpi/toshiba/keys.

Please make sure that your kernel has enabled the Toshiba option in the ACPI section.
For more information read the documentation and/or http://fnfx.sf.net/index.php?section=doc#kernel.

I go to http://fnfx.sf.net/index.php?section=doc#kernel, but the last message from this page date 28. December 2004...(it's very old...)

I have an toshiba_acpi.ko in my /lib/modules/

My laptop toshiba boot and work fine...

It is a bug or not?

Comment 2 Jiri Skala 2010-06-07 05:38:43 UTC
Kernel is not the latest. Try to update.

I'm going to swtich it to kernel and to add module-init-tools CC.

Comment 3 dominique 2010-06-07 06:00:47 UTC
I install F13 with kernel, and now I don't have this  message.
Close this bug...

Comment 4 dominique 2010-06-23 14:32:06 UTC
I re-open this bug because I have same problem with F14 rawhide and kernel 2.6.34., and with 2.6.34 kernel my toshiba don't boot, and I have no message in the boot log for this this boot...

Comment 5 dominique 2010-06-23 16:28:27 UTC
I made a typo, I want say I have same problem with F14 rawhide and kernel 2.6.33, I have the same message about:
 Démarrage de fnfxd : modprobe: FATAL: Error inserting toshiba_acpi

but kernel 2.6.33 boot with F14

This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '13'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2011-06-27 15:57:41 UTC
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
