Hi. My distro is Kubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat)
My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite M40, the one sold in canada.

I use your git repo to download your latest source code. When I use the make command there are 3 warnings in the compiling
like

omnibook/ec.c:172: warning: suggest parentheses around operand of ‘!’ or change ‘&’ to ‘&&’ or ‘!’ to ‘~’
omnibook/acpi.c:764: warning: ISO C90 forbids mixed declarations and code
/omnibook/acpi.c:1017: warning: ISO C90 forbids mixed declarations and code

and at the end it says:

WARNING: modpost: Found 30 section mismatch(es).
To see full details build your kernel with:
'make CONFIG_DEBUG_SECTION_MISMATCH=y'
CC /home/zool/omnibook/omnibook.mod.o
LD [M] /home/zool/omnibook/omnibook.ko
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.35-22-generic'

when I try to load the module with modprobe, immediatly after hitting enter it says:
killed

and nothing seems to work..... the lcd control has no effect.
I'm not very experienced with compiling programmes but I'm using the omnibook module since Kubuntu jaunty and it always worked like a charm. I'd like to say I'm grateful for all contributors past and present for that gem of code. Having lcd brightness control back saved my eyes in the last years.

I wonder why this is happening.
