Re: Toshiba - Documentation for Linux Developers

both Toshiba types (original and compal-oem machines) are basically
unsupported for Linux.
The omnibook-module for compal-systems was maintained outside the kernel
and stalled for some time now.
The toshiba_acpi included in the kernel is outdated (there is a newer
release, that fixes some bugs). Toshiba_acpi does only work on 32 bit
systems, it breaks on 64 bit systems.
If anyone is interested in some hacking I can provide shell-access to
both types of machines.
For some Tecra machines, Toshiba has provided some Vista-compatible
BIOSes, they seem to enhance acpi-stuff for Linux too. So you might look
for a bios-update.

Try compile SVN version as commented in my last e-mail
OK, I tried version from SVN. Nothing changed :|

Try force recognize with ectype parameter.
#modprobe omnibook ectype=x
Sure, I tried every ectype between 1 and 15 before (omnibook from
package) and now (version from SVN) again. I checked two files (when
existed): lcd and temperature. Temperature (if file existed for forced
ectype) was always 0 and lcd always had some random values. Inserting
other values (1, 7) didn't change anything.
