Description Aleksey Nogin 2002-10-02 17:45:55 EDT
I see several bugs in /etc/sysconfig/apm-scripts/apmscript

1) The most important one is that the code for starting up LOWPOWER_SERVICES is
inside the ``[ -n "$POWER_SERVICES" ]'' test, so if POWER_SERVICES is empty or
undefined, then LOWPOWER_SERVICES will never be restarted.

2) What if I get into a lowerpower state and then insert a secondary battery -
will LOWPOWER_SERVICES be restarted then? The current script appears to only try
to restart them when laptop is plugged back into AC...

3) What if I get into a lowerpower state, suspend the laptop, plug it into AC
and then resume - will the LOWPOWER_SERVICES be restarted then? Havn't tested
that yet though.

I believe these problems still exist in Phoebe

Patch to fix the script (against apmd-3.0.2-14).

This problem still exists in Phoebe-2 (apmd-3.0.2-14). Attaching a patch that
(hopefully) fixes it.
