Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 79201
No APM support compiled into kernel?
Last modified: 2013-07-02 22:08:16 EDT
Description of Problem:
Performed an upgrade from 8.0/Psyche to GinGin/beta1 on my laptop.
Upon booting into KDE, the battery monitor indicator shows a battery with an X
through it. So I went to a console and ran "apm" to see what the power
management reported, and it said:
[root@localhost root]# apm
No APM support in kernel
Is this an oversight, or is there a new way of handling power management in GinGin?
[root@localhost root]# rpm -q apmd
This problem appears to be fixed in GinGin2.
Spoke too soon, it's back in Phoebe1. Upgraded from GinGin2.
It appears ACPI is the culprit - I added "acpi=off" to my kernel boot params,
and the APM monitor works fine now.
