Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 481118
PowerManager is not correctly detecting battery
Last modified: 2009-07-27 07:21:58 EDT
I had some problems with my laptop's battery (Lenovo N200) being broken with kernels after 2.6.25 I think. In Rawhide, I finally see the correct information (as far as I can tell) in /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/state again.
Still, PowerManager does not work correctly:
- If I boot without battery, it tells me my battery is critically low or defective.
- It always shows capacity as "nan%" (regardless of battery present or not)
- It seems to correctly notice if I plug in/off AC. It still only shows a broken battery icon if no battery is inserted.
Any more information I can provide for you?
Kernel bug which we fail to catch in DeviceKit-power. They'll be a new release next week which should fix things until the kernel is fixed. Thanks.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
I think we can close this bug, things *used* to work fine for a while (kind of broken again now, but different thing: bug 513014)
