When trying to access the lcd brightness, the module
generates an error. Trying to write a brightness level
logged my off. Attached are the sections from
/var/log/messages. The first one is trying to read
/proc/omnibook/lcd using mc, the second using "cat
/proc/omnibook/lcd". The third one is trying to write
using "echo 5 > /proc/omnibook/lcd".

    Hi,

    I have the same problems on my TS 40MX.

    When trying to set the lcd brightness via ssh, the
    connection is closed.
    Moreover, it seems not possible to unload the module.

    Cheers,
    Julien

    There was a very stupid error (missing braces) in the
    omnibook_io_match function.
    This was vicious as by mere luck the bug wasn't triggered on
    my machine.
    Fixed in trunk. Fixed tarball to follow
