Description Rui Miguel Seabra 2004-04-07 11:43:06 EDT
I've upgrade Linux from test2's stock 2.6.3-2.1.253.2.1 to 2.6.4-1.305
(and I've tried previous 2.6.4 releases with similar results), and I
notice that battery is considered as not available, for instance shown
as N/A by the battery status gnome applet.

I will attach dmesg from after boot for both versions of Linux and a
surprising (many things are removed!) diff.
