Hello everyone,

we have another to join the team, Greg is "franzander" off the Toshiba
forums. He has got linux to run on his TCM:
|Got it running, using sparkylinux and some hints from your website,
which is really great!
|Now I was trying to see if there is any new development concerning
the missing functionalities.
|In particular, battery indicator and backlight control would be great.
|A post on the Asus T100TA seems to suggest that the 4.3 kernel might
offer slightly better support
|for battery indication at least:
||I tried upgrading to the newer kernel on Debian, but sure enough,
this leads to a loss of
|keyboard and touchpad. Is there anything I could try to get it to
work on 4.3, or would this need modifications to the kernel?
|If so, is there any chance you might issue a newer kernel, 4.3 or
maybe even 4.4 which is available on sid?

I've deliberately left the previous message below so he can see the
recent topic of conversation.

I've been ill for the last ten days and had no energy for anything, am
hoping I can bring some attention back to this.
