Description Nicholas Allen 2004-12-08 11:00:40 UTC
Description of problem: Using ACPI in FC3 no longer works. Only some events are reported and the battery status is incorrectly reported (never changes unless I plug in the AC adapter and remove it). Most often the unplugging of the AC adapter creates no events in /proc/acpi/event. The lid open and close events are also not reported. I used to have no problems with this on FC2 and also FC1. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kernel-2.6.9-1.667 How reproducible: Everytime Steps to Reproduce: 1.Boot laptop with ACPI enabled 2.stop acpid and the cat /proc/acpi/event and see that npt all events are reported and that false battery status is also reported 3. Actual results: Expected results: All events should be correctly reported. Additional info:

This is not only laptop issue but also generic ACPI brokeness. Trying to turn off computer with Gigabyte GA-7VT880L - VIA KT880 motherboard hangs after acpi command is issued. Turning off the computer worked in FC2.

I have a similiar set of problems with FC3 on an Acer Aspire 1684 (kernel 2.6.10-1.741). Battery management via acpi is not functional even though the acpi driver has initialised w/o errors: ACPI: Power Resource [PFN0] (off) ACPI: Power Resource [PFN1] (off) ACPI: Fan [FAN0] (off) ACPI: Fan [FAN1] (off) ACPI: Processor [CPU0] (supports C1 C2 C3) ACPI: Processor [CPU0] (supports 8 throttling states) ACPI: Thermal Zone [THRM] (55 C) speedstep-centrino: invalid ACPI data speedstep-centrino: try compiling with CONFIG_X86_SPEEDSTEP_CENTRINO_ACPI enabled ACPI wakeup devices: ACPI: (supports S0 S3 S4 S5) ACPI: Power Button (FF) [PWRF] ACPI: Lid Switch [LID] ACPI: Sleep Button (CM) [SLPB] The KDE Battery Management control reports : Your computer seems to have a partial ACPI installation. ACPI was probably enabled, but some of the sub-options were not - you need to enable at least 'AC Adaptor' and 'Control Method Battery' and then rebuild your kernel . This is confirmed by the lack of any files in the /proc/acpi/ac_adapter/ and /proc/acpi/battery/ directories. Some events are reported by acpi_listen - the lid, sleep & power buttons. But none for battery or ac adapter. HTH

Kernel update to 2.6.10-1.741_FC3 fixed this issue for me.

Nicholas, can you try the latest errata please ?
Comment 5 Nicholas Allen 2005-02-24 15:30:56 UTC
I just tried with 2.6.10-1.766_FC3 kernel and more events seen to be reported but sometimes an ac unplug is not noticed at all and a lid close or open is not reported or is reproted the next time I plug the ac adapter in (which can be a very long time after the lid is open/closed).
Comment 6 Dave Jones 2005-07-15 18:21:22 UTC
An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which may contain a fix for your problem. Please update to this new kernel, and report whether or not it fixes your problem. If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version field of this bug to 'fc4'. Thank you.
Comment 7 Vladimir Kotal 2005-07-15 21:50:36 UTC
No, this problem is not present in FC4 and I belive it is fixed in FC3 as well. Since FC2 is now probably considered obsolete, you can close this bug.
