Description Johannes Hansen 2005-07-27 01:45:35 UTC
Current IBM-ACPI in kernel is version 0.8.
http://ibm-acpi.sf.net has a stable version 0.11

Version 0.8 lacks support for importent hardware sensors, fan control
docking/undocking. Much is fixed in version 0.11.

Please upgrade!

Boris,
Please attach the version of the driver you'd like me to include
with 2.6.14, and I'll start by including it with the 2.6.13 ACPI patch.
Please run it through Lindent before releasing it.

thanks,
-Len

c-file to be copied to the acpi sourcetree. v0.11

I created attachment of the newest ibm-acpi version. Both the tar.gz and the
c-file.

The file only needs to overwrite the old one, no new configuration options
needed.
Documentation needs update too, can be found in tar.gz as README.

Thank you for adding this.
Comment 4 Borislav Deianov 2005-08-16 10:19:49 UTC
The current version (0.11) is not suitable for inclusion as it needs some
compilation fixes and reformatting. I'm working on an update.

ibm-acpi-0.12 (patch for 2.6.13-rc6+acpi-20050729)

Len,

Please apply the attached patch (ibm-acpi-0.12). It brings the driver up
to the latest version and includes the changes already in the tree. It's
been run through Lindent. The new features in this version have had
extensive testing (~4500 downloads).

Thanks,
Boris
Comment 6 Len Brown 2005-08-25 14:10:21 UTC
gah, it didn't apply and I don't see the 
full 0.12 version on the site. 
 
is 0.12 the same as 0.11 but Lindented? 
If yes, I can get 0.11 from your site, 
over-write the Lindented version in Linux, 
and then Lindent the result.

Documentation/ibm-acpi.txt

Len, 

Please replace Documentation/ibm-acpi.txt and drivers/acpi/ibm_acpi.c with the
files from the last two attachments. Those are exactly the same as in the patch

(0.12, Lindented and incorporating previous changes in the tree.)

Regards,
Boris
