If it can't or the module isn't found, then you'll

Oh my apologies I didn't realize I could attempt to issue that as a command.
I tried that and I get the following message:
FATAL: Error inserting toshiba_acpi (/lib/modules/184.108.40.206-76.fc7/kernel/drivers/acpi/toshiba_acpi.ko): No such device
I get a similar error when I type in the other command as well. I am a little bummed out about this. Attempting to compile my own kernel sounds like something totally out of my realm of knowledge. I am still new to linux so I wouldn't even know where to begin. It would be nice if they could finally add support for hot keys and actually have it work.
I know also that the gnome-power-management is supposedly supposed to have support for changing the brightness of the screen. However on the tab in the manager that is supposed to have the option the option doesn't appear.
Anyways I guess there isn't much I can do at this point. I will keep searching the web, maybe someone out there has come across a similar problem and found a fix
thanks for your responses guys
