i have ubuntu 12.04 on ThinkPad edge E420
Code:
3.2.0-24-generic-pae #37-Ubuntu SMP  i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux


where i`m load tp_smapi, i have error:
Code:
$ sudo modprobe tp_smapi
FATAL: Error inserting tp_smapi (/lib/modules/3.2.0-24-generic-pae/extra/tp_smapi.ko): No such device or address
tail -1 /var/log/syslog
 kernel: [ 9493.919839] thinkpad_ec: initial ec test failed


i`m search solution:
edit /usr/src/tp-smapi-0.41/thinkpad_ec.c on 460 line
Code:
TP_DMI_MATCH("IBM", "ThinkPad T23"),
                TP_DMI_MATCH("IBM", "ThinkPad E420"), //ADD
                TP_DMI_MATCH("IBM", "ThinkPad X24"),
                TP_DMI_MATCH("LENOVO", "ThinkPad E420"), //ADD

and comment line 489 this source code
Code:
/*
   if (!check_dmi_for_ec()) {
      printk(KERN_WARNING
             "thinkpad_ec: no ThinkPad embedded controller!\n");
      return -ENODEV;
   }
*/


and
Code:
# dkms remove -m tp-smapi -v 0.41 --all
# dkms add -m tp-smapi -v 0.41
# dkms build -m tp-smapi -v 0.41
# dkms install -m tp-smapi -v 0.41
# modprobe tp-smapi


but i have this error again.

You can try this (add your model info into the tp_smapi source code).

EDIT: Ah sorry, seems like you have tried it.
