Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.32-5
Severity: wishlist
File: /lib/modules/2.6.32-trunk-686/kernel/drivers/platform/x86/thinkpad_acpi.ko
X-debbugs-Cc: ibm-acpi-devel@lists.sourceforge.net, linux-thinkpad@linux-thinkpad.org

We see
ThinkPad ACPI Extras v0.23
ThinkPad BIOS 1WET88WW (2.08 ), EC 1VHT28WW-1.04
IBM ThinkPad R50e, model 1834NV1
WARNING: Outdated ThinkPad BIOS/EC firmware
WARNING: This firmware may be missing critical bug fixes and/or important features

Perhaps it could mention what it believes the current versions should
be, so we can check the IBM website before decide we have send the unit
back to IBM to get whatever it is that is bothering it updated (as we
Linux users can't update the BIOS ourselves.)

Also it could mention perhaps some URLs on where it got its information
about what is current from.

upstream decided not to add the requested addtional info.

It seems more appropriate to ask Lenovo for better Linux support.
as this beyond a debian bug, closing.
