ACPI: Battery socket found, battery absent

Similar problems on my sony vaio:

ACPI: Battery socket found, battery present
ACPI: Battery socket found, battery present

However, only the first battery is present and the second absent.
Moreover, the values reported by /proc/acpi/battery/{1,2} are bogous.

Using a stock 2.4.20 + latest acpi patch works just fine (with both
one and two batteries present).

When I try doing "modprobe ospm_battery" on my Dell Lattitude C640, I get a
kernel Oops (bug 81124) and an empty /proc/acpi/battery/
Comment 3 Aleksey Nogin 2003-01-05 21:17:36 EST
Oh, and another thing - Fn-F3 that normally shows the battery status (under grub
and APM kernel) stops working (just does not do anything) as soon as the ACPI
kernel is loaded...
