Does it build and work properly now under x86_64?
Read ya, Phil
i don't know but eg hp 6125 laptop is not working with acpi and there is no apmd
so there is no way to know the state of the battery. this means it's just trun
off when the battery is empty:-(
FC5 has now been EOL'd.
So try the new one (which is in FC6 or F7), with "apm=on acpi=off" as kernel
parameter at the boot time. Then check if you have /proc/apm/*. If not, then
your NB does not support amp, and amp daemon if useless.
If this NB supports amp, then I create x86_64 version of apmd.
Please, let me know.
i don't have:-(
APM technology is very old stuff (most of (maybe all) of manufacturer does not
support it now) and is replaced by ACPI technology. Your NB is new one, so I do
not think that it supports APM.
So, new kernel which is in FC6 or F7 does not working witch your NB? For sure,
please boot with "acpi=on" as kernel boot parameter. Then check what do you have
in /proc/acpi/*. There should be some files/directories (for battery
/proc/acpi/battery/BAT[0,1]/[state, info, ...]).
Please check this.
the truth is that i already install i386 version in stead of x86_64 since i've
got a lots of problem with x86_64 (wireless, card reader etc..) but afaik there
is acpi support on it.
OK, I close this bug, because for now there is no reason to port apmd to x86_64.
