Hello!

I have Toshiba Satellite P25-S609 which is not supported by the module. Maybe it can be supported?

after loading module dmesg says:

omnibook: Driver version 2.20070211.
omnibook: Unknown model.
omnibook: Enabled features: version dmi.

i need it because ACPI reports wrong battery size, 4000mAh not 6450mAh

the information from /proc/omnibook/

# cat /proc/omnibook/dmi
BIOS Vendor: TOSHIBA
BIOS Version: V2.10
BIOS Release: 12/27/2004
System Vendor: TOSHIBA
Product Name: Satellite P25
Version: PSP20U-19PS8R
Serial Number: Y3026615C
Board Vendor: TOSHIBA
Board Name: Null

# cat /proc/omnibook/version
2.20070211

is it possible to add p25-s609 to the module? What other informations should i provide?

    I've tried ectype 11 .. 15
    i think (but not sure) ectype 11 is the best one, except there is still no info about battery.

    Hi,
    I will add your model to database with ectype 11.
    You will need to load the module with the "battery=1" parameter as it's disabled by default

    Gr8 with battery=1 it is working now! Thanks!

    What is not working is e.g.:
    $ cat fan
    Fan is on (level 54)
    It is still same value, if teh fan is working and if not

    $ cat lcd
    LCD brightness: 7 (max value: 10)
    max value is 7, this module is working better with ectype=12

    Anyway the battery is the most important to me. And because i'm just a user - and also want to help you with configure the omnibook module - i need some help how to test the best ectype, and if it is possible to create new ectype with some pieces of ectype=11, 12, 13, etc ? can i use all ectype and will not damage my computer?

    i'm attaching omnibook.txt with data found with ectype=12 and ectype=11 Now when i'm looking on it ... maby ectype=12 is better?

    Hi,
    after inspecting your attached file and your dsdt I realized that you indeed have an ectype 12.
    I have just changed that in svn trunk.
    You will still need to force the battery parameter.

    To answer you question in the latest attached file, you can disable the touchpad by doing a 'echo 0 > /proc/omnibook/touchpad'
