Fortunately, I must be psychic or something - yesterday I moved my entire set of Outlook .pst files to my desktop machine, so I simply dual-booted into Fedora, opened a Remote Desktop connection to the desktop box and kept on working.
If I had a PowerBook, I'd be typing "bite my shiny metal ass" by now... But, alas, that is not to be.
In the meantime, could someone please lead me to some sort of sane pointers regarding rebuilding toshiba_acpi on Fedora Core 4?
All I can find is hopelessly outdated or assumes you've been keeping track of every minor change in the kernel rebuild process since 2.4 (which I haven't), plus the nuances of the new packaging scheme.
I honestly don't understand why the Fedora folk still haven't added a patch to allow enabling the built-in Bluetooth device under ACPI, since /dev/toshiba has gone the way of the dodo and they did, after all, get fnfx to work in the meantime.
