rearrange a piece of guide in tinycore
« on: February 10, 2011, 08:26:43 PM »
I found this guide http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=59055 for debian but command dont work.
Code: [Select]
9. Here is a fix for the screen rotate button, Normally the Roate Button is assigned to XScreenSaver (at least in gnome).
There is a fix but it is a bit more advanced and I found this in the ubuntu forums posted by a user, Sergey1369 (see notes at bottom for references).
Do this as root to be able to map commands to the rotate button:

“cd /lib/modules/2.6.35-23-generic/kernel/drivers/platform/x86
cp eeepc-laptop.ko eeepc-laptop.ko.orig
sed -e 's!\x1a\x0\x0\x0\x98!\x1a\x0\x0\x0\x99!' eeepc-laptop.ko.orig > eeepc-laptop.ok
rmmod eeepc-laptop
modprobe eeepc-laptop

GOOD: Now button can be binded via standard keyboard shortcuts to any program.
BAD: every kernel update requires repeating procedure.”

Now create a mapping as user:
echo “keycode 161 = XF86Mail” >> ~/.Xmodmap
Reboot or restart X-server and you can now map the button in your keyboard shortcuts (like the touchrotate command or compiz expo in my case)

I am interested in this part, you could tell me what differences there are between tinycore and debian to make it work?

This could be due to a couple of things:

1. the debian module is not from the same kernel version as that used by tc and thus could have changed.

2. did you use busybox "sed" or the full version from the "sed" extension? Sometimes the full version will work whereas the busybox version will not.

Ugh, a binary hack. That might or might not work.

Anyway, did you gunzip the module before doing that?

Gunzip is installed and working, but I had not unpacked, this time I did.
I also installed sed.tcz for safety

Code: [Select]
root@box:/lib/modules/2.6.33.3-tinycore/kernel/drivers/platform/x86# gunzip eeepc-laptop.ko.gz
root@box:/lib/.../x86# cp eeepc-laptop.ko eeepc-laptop.ko.orig
root@box:/lib/.../x86# sed -e 's!\x1a\x0\x0\x0\x98!\x1a\x0\x0\x0\x99!' eeepc-laptop.ko.orig > eeepc-laptop.ok
ok

Code: [Select]
root@box:/lib/.../x86# rmmod eeepc-laptop
rmmod: can't unload 'eeepc_laptop': unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter
This not work, nor therefore modprobe:

Code: [Select]
root@box:/.../x86# modprobe eeepc-laptop
modprobe: can't load module eeepc-laptop (kernel/drivers/platform/x86/eeepc-laptop.ko.gz): unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter

does "modinfo eeepc-laptop" show any dependent modules?

Code: [Select]
root@box:/lib/modules/2.6.33.3-tinycore/kernel/drivers/platform/x86# modinfo eeepc-laptop
filename:       eeepc-laptop

but I think something is not right because if I try a module at random, I have the same result:
Code: [Select]
root@box:/lib/modules/2.6.33.3-tinycore/kernel/drivers/platform/x86# modinfo supertcpc
filename:       supertcpc

Last lines of dmesg please. I also recall the eee module depended on some extensions, maybe it was hwmon.

Looks like there might be a typo in those instructions...
Code: [Select]
sed -e 's!\x1a\x0\x0\x0\x98!\x1a\x0\x0\x0\x99!' eeepc-laptop.ko.orig > eeepc-laptop.ok
ko != ok

Ok i correct this passage but i have the same result:
Code: [Select]

root@box:/.../x86# cp eeepc-laptop.ko eeepc-laptop.ko.orig

root@box:/.../x86# rmmod eeepc-laptop
rmmod: can't unload 'eeepc_laptop': unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter
root@box:/.../x86# modprobe eeepc-laptop
modprobe: can't load module eeepc-laptop (kernel/drivers/platform/x86/eeepc-laptop.ko.gz): No such file or directory
root@box:/.../x86# modinfo eeepc-laptop

You forgot to re-gzip it.

Sorry, last dmesg lines *after* trying to modprobe it and seeing the unknown symbol message.

Try loading the hwmon and pci-hotplug extensions, and try again.
