That aside, I've been working on a patch to acpi_ibm to support special button events, bluetooth on/off and controlling the keyboard backlight (not just for the T470s, but also for other recent Lenovo models). I still need to update the man page and polish it, but it's already available in a code review and I use it myself successfully (I didn't look into things like fan control though, as those really shouldn't be touched these days): https://reviews.freebsd.org/D14103 Direct link to the patch: https://reviews.freebsd.org/D14103?download=true Testers and code reviews are welcome. Best, Michael p.s. Make sure to load the correct kernel module in case you rebuilt it individually. -- Michael Gmelin _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
