Description Johannes Köster 2007-03-14 13:22:21 EDT
Description of problem:
Battery and AC status on HP-compaq nx6325 not working.
Although bad state problem (bug 229589) is fixed in recent update, the AC and 
battery status either does not update from start or stops updating after 
plugging ac in.
These problems seem to be fixed in kernel 2.6.21 (according to reports on the 
gentoo-wiki) so there must exist patches in the kernel bugzilla which should 
fix this.
Perhaps related with this are some APIC errors (see dmesg) but disabling apic 
doesn't help.

How reproducible:
Buy a recent HP Compaq notebook and check. :-)

Comment 2 Chuck Ebbert 2007-03-14 17:03:57 EDT
Please test 2.6.20-1.2925.fc6
Comment 3 Johannes Köster 2007-03-15 04:34:35 EDT
Does not work unfortunately :-(
still the same problem
Comment 4 Johannes Köster 2007-03-20 04:40:20 EDT
It seems that acpi hangs somehow.
at least button and battery module cannot be unloaded.

thermal polling frequency is not set. Is that standart?
Comment 5 Chuck Ebbert 2007-03-22 15:51:30 EDT
Does booting with the kernel option "acpi_serialize" help?
Comment 6 Johannes Köster 2007-03-22 20:33:31 EDT
No, using this option the kernel hangs during init even before udev and so on is
Comment 7 Chuck Ebbert 2007-03-23 12:44:40 EDT
Can you look in /proc/acpi/battery/BATx/state when the status
is not updating? This is the kernel's view of what is happening.

Comment 9 Johannes Köster 2008-04-04 03:19:19 EDT
This bug does not appear any more since Fedora 7 due to the new kernel. I have
at the moment not the ability to check it with older versions but if they lso
have kernel>=2.6.22 it should work without any problems.
