From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (X11; U; SunOS 5.8 sun4u)

Kernel logs ACPI cannot start APM is active, but APM denies running
because of a 'bad bios' in the Dell Inspiron 5000e.  The kernel needs
to detect this bad bios and disable APM or emulate APM using ACPI.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot fisher on a Dell Inspiron 5000e

Actual Results:  Get error message and no APM functions such as battery
life left.

Expected Results:  ACPI should provide APM like functions such as battery
life left.

Comment 1 Glen Foster 2001-02-08 23:33:26 UTC
We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2001-02-09 10:53:57 UTC
Newer kernels will ship with ACPI disabled.

Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 2001-02-13 21:00:58 UTC
will be in next rawhide kernel
