Kernel Bug Tracker – Bug 9907
ThinkPad X61 needs acpi_osi="Linux" option to enable the "mute" key
Last modified: 2008-02-15 12:35:31 UTC
Earliest failing kernel version: 184.108.40.206-107.fc8
Distribution: Fedora 8
Hardware Environment: ThinkPad X61
If I boot 2.6.23 or 2.6.24 kernel without any command line options, the 'mute' key does not work. If I add acpi_osi="Linux" command line option in both kernels (2.6.23 and .24) the 'mute' key starts working as expected.
Will attach dmesg output and dmidecode

this bug is still present in kernel-2.6.25-0.35.rc1.fc9
The patch below shipped in 2.6.25-rc1-git4
to work around this BIOS issue.
I'll sync it into the previous .stable releases as
part of a blacklist update.
please re-open if you still have an issue
with a release later than above.
