toshutils for Solaris

This package provides

  • kernel mode driver to make calls into the Toshiba Hardware Configuration Interface (HCI) from user space.
  • toshd, a daemon that uses the tosh_hci driver to listen for the brightness hotkeys and adjust the brightness of the lcd.


# make install

This will build and install the driver and the utility.

# reboot -- -r

This will cause solaris to rebuild its device database.

When the machine has rebooted:

# make finish

This will load the driver and register toshd with smf(5) so that it runs at boot time.
