Last modified: 2008-11-18 14:23:37 EST
Description of problem:
when the laptop is using the battery and battery goes empty, if the power
preferences is set to "do nothing when laptop battery is critically low",
laptop turns off. after connecting the power and turning the laptop on, kernel
(kernel-126.96.36.199-10.fc8) does not start. it just freezes. I had to use the
previouse kernel build to boot, and then reinstall the latest kernel
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. diconnect the power from laptop
2. set the power preferences so when laptop battery is cirically low, nothing
is to be done.
3. waite untill battery goes out of power and laptop turns off.
4. connect the power and turn the laptop on.
kernel does not boot.
HP Pavilion dv6560
