Hi, i've been trying now for about a week to get things running properly with acpi on this laptop. without acpi support (using newest patches) closing the lid causes the machine to hard lock. using acpi fixes this problem but causes the fan to be stuck on(comes on and never goes off) i stumbled across omke.pl. this file seems to work (lcd on / off works) on my laptop. so this gives me hope that the omnibook utils may be of some help to me. i tried using the omnibook kernel module but all i get is:
[root@lappy /proc/omnibook]# ls
dmi shows the following:
BIOS Vendor: TOSHIBA
BIOS Version: 1.14.ROM
BIOS Release: 12/29/2000
System Vendor: TOSHIBA
Product Name: SATELLITE 1625CDT
Serial Number: 1013786CU
Board Vendor: Null
Board Name: 5168
Board Version: 1234
any help is greatly appreciated. thanks!
Yes because your machine is unsupported yet. Try to load the omnibook module with ectype=1 parameter or please send me the DSDT of you laptop as described in the README file of omnibook module.
