wmacpi don't change when on battery
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:39 EST
Description of problem:
wmacpi doesn't change when on battery. I use wmacpi with fluxbox.
acpitool output is
Battery #1 : discharging, 92.39%, 02:12:06
AC adapter : off-line
Thermal zone 1 : ok, 40 C
but wmacpi is still on ac power with 100%
I have a dell latitude d505 with acpi
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
I found today that the wmacpi version shipped in fedora is very old
(2002) and that development is now done at another place:
with latest version released in 2005. So having wmacpi not working isn't
a big surprise.
I have a modified spec file (and a patch) for the new version,
which works. It depends on libdockapp I have just submitted.
Created attachment 145210 [details]
specfile patch to update to latest version
Created attachment 145211 [details]
initialize properly libdockapp
libdockapp is now in devel. I can update and rebuild wmacpi in the
devel branch and in the other branches whenever libdockapp appears
in thoses branches.
Upstream has integrated the patch in 2.2a1.
I consider the issue to be harmful since it prevents wmacpi to work.
No need to hurry, however since it has been broken for months.
As per the 'Who can modify packages guideline', I will let you 14
days to fix it and afterwards I'll fix it myself (change cvs in devel,
wait 2 days, build, change cvs in branches, wait 2 days, build).
Hm missed the devel announcement as I was sick for some time now. Will upgrade
Everything seems right now, thanks, you can close the bug.
Thanks for reporting.
