Hi,
I have a Toshiba Satellite
L300-1AM, using Ubuntu 8.10 x86 and the sound is working, webcam working,
wifi too. The
volume wheel in front of notebook is working also. I had some problems
with wifi, but after kernel update to 2.6.27-11, it was solved. At boot I receive the message "unsupported PM cap regs version (7)", and this is from Intel GMA4500 video on-board, because only this adapter has cap regs version (7).

 The
biggest problem is Power Management, in fact the Insyde BIOS ! Because
of unsupported BIOS the cooling fan is starting quite late, near 70 Celsius and
does not stop until next reboot. Second, because of the same Insyde
BIOS, I can not activate the FN+Fx keys which are requesting the
"toshiba_acpi" module (fnfxd and toshset are the packages who can do
this if toshiba_acpi module is activated). The module is present inside
kernel, but can not be activated.

user at TOSHIBA:~$ sudo modprobe toshiba_acpi
FATAL: Error inserting toshiba_acpi (/lib/modules/2.6.27-11-generic/kernel/drivers/acpi/toshiba_acpi.ko): No such device

user at TOSHIBA:~$ locate toshiba_acpi
/etc/modprobe.d/toshiba_acpi.modprobe
/lib/modules/2.6.27-11-generic/kernel/drivers/acpi/toshiba_acpi.ko


Can somenone help to find a way to have control on fan ?
Can someone help to find a way to activate the "toshiba_acpi" module (patch the Insyde BIOS) ? 
How to get PM on Intel video adapter GMA4500 ?

Thank you,

Silviu
