Description Ron Yorston 2004-06-01 05:43:51 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv:1.0.1)
Gecko/20020920 Netscape/7.0

Description of problem:
If the battery meter is enabled xosview looks for /proc/apm to get
information about battery state.  This isn't present if ACPI is being
used for power management.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Find a machine without /proc/apm, but with /proc/acpi/battery
2. Run xosview with the battery meter turned on.

Actual Results:  xosview complains that it's unable to open /proc/apm.

Expected Results:  xosview should check for /proc/acpi/battery and use
the information there.

Add support for ACPI battery monitoring

A quick hack to add support for ACPI battery information to xosview.  It works
for me on a Dell Latitude L400.  It only supports one battery.

it seems 1.8.2 works well with apm and ACPI. The new version will show
up in rawhide soon. Thanks for your report.
