Are we to guess that you have a Sony Vaio laptop
and you are trying to key fnkeys or brighitness to work?
The sonypid module is in the linux kernel. All you may need
to do is load the kernel module. The other problem is that
you may have a conflicting module that may need to be blacklisted.
Did you look at lsmod to see what modules were loaded?
When you say exact details the expectation would be something in this order.
I have a Sony Vaio laptop model number. The function keys do not work even
after trying to load the kernel module.
I followed this sites information: http://www.popies.net/sonypi/index.html
I downloaded the sonypid file. I did not try the spicctrl file.
After downloading and extracting the file. I followed the compile instructions and
I was not able to get it to work.
With the example above the there is enough information to start asking questions.
When questions are asked without alot of information then it is more of a
guessing game about the real problem.
After looking at the file it would appear that if you ran the Makefile
that the path your are trying to use is wrong. If you compiled the
program you should find the path to be:
If you run that command as root you should then see the module being loaded.
My comments are not meant to inflame but to teach the better way to ask for
