For me, distributing binaries would be a significant hassle. Each Linux
distribution has it's own ideosyncracies, and it is just not feasible for me
provide binaries for each distribution. The stable version of the Toshiba
Linux Utilities are included as part of the Debian and SuSE distributions.
If the thought of compiling it youself is too daunting then use these
If you are having problems downloading the utilities then all I can suggest
is trying again latter. It probably means that either the web server is down or
there is a problem somewhere on the internet between you and the server. The
links are all correct and there is nothing I can do to help. Please be patient
and try again latter.
If you are submitting a bug report, please make sure you are using the
latest development version first, it has be correctly installed and the kernel
module is loaded. In addition check the TODO file so you are not
reporting a bug I am already aware of.
When submitting your report it is vital to tell me what model you are using,
what distribution is installed and what kernel revision you are running. If you
are reporting a feature that no longer works tell me what version it previously
did work on. If a program is crashing tell me what you where doing when it
crashed. Without this information your bug report will be worthless noise.
The stable version of the utilities requires Toshiba Laptop support either
compiled into the kernel or as a loadable module. For 2.4.x series kernels this
is located in the Processor type and features submenu, and for 2.2.x series
kernels it is located in the General Setup menu. When you type "make install"
the special device files required will be created if they do not already
For historical purposes you can still download version 1.1 of the Toshiba
Linux Utilities. However this code is unsupported and it is recommended that
you use the latest version. If you cannot get this version to work my only
advice on the subject is to use version 2.0 or later.
This is an archive of the snapshots which eventually became version 2.0.
In due course these will be removed as I start development on the next
version of the Toshiba Linux Utilities.
