Description of problem:
Im using Fedora Core test 3 (Fully updated via apt-get from rawhide on a HP
The machine is running kernel 2.4.22-1.2097.nptl booted with acpi=on in grub.conf.
The KDE power applet knows if the machine is on power or not and can also tell
me how much charge is on the battery. It does however not know how long the
battery should last. It's spamming me with little warning windows containing
messages that the battery is almost empty, 2 - 14 minutes left, even tho it
reports the battery to be 91% charged.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use an ACPI laptop like the nx7000
2. Use KDE for a few minutes while not connected to mains power.
This has been fixed long ago :)
