Bug#487154: toshset claims to need kernel module, man page says otherwise
I installed Debian Lenny with beta 2 installer on a Toshiba Portege
R500. toshset is installed, when I run it I get:
required kernel toshiba support not enabled.
The manpage explicitly says no special module is required. It's not
clear what config option would produce it. I have subsequently
recompiled the kernel using a patch from noodles to enable bluetooth
support, but I'd like backlight support and so on if possible.
I see the package is non-maintained, so maybe this is a dead end?
