Greetings-- I've just installed Fedora (FC9) for the first time on my dual boot Toshiba laptop, Model A65-S126, which uses an ACPI BIOS. I think the important things for me are working except for fan control. I loaded fnfx from the Fedora software repository to help, and it loaded without incident, but won't run. Trying to start fnfxd (e.g., at boot time) complains:
Fatal error: Could [not] open /proc/acpi/toshiba/keys.
Please make sure that your kernel has enabled the Toshiba option in the ACPI section.
The install created a /proc/acpi directory, but no /proc/acpi/toshiba under it. I dug around a bit and found the toshiba_acpi module down the /lib/modules tree, but apparently it can't be loaded by the kernel. Trying to do so using "/sbin/modprobe -i toshiba_acpi" complains about "No such device".
So here's my question: Do I really have to recompile the kernel to get Toshiba support, or am I missing something? What's the best way to know what options were used to build the kernel? I've dug to about the depths where I'm comfortable and wouldn't want to recompile if there were an easier way. Thanks for any help!
