If it can't read the battery status at all, that's a kernel or BIOS bug. What's
the output of 'dmesg' when booting?
Comment 2 Shaun Carter 2003-03-20 19:09:54 EST
dmesg during boot?  I can get you the output of dmesg _after_ boot, is that what
you're requesting.  

Sorry if I got the wrong component here, I figured snice KLaptop was saying apmd
wasn't even installed that it may land here.

I have also  upgrade to kernel-2.4.20-2.54.  No change.

Attached  below is the dmesg output _after_ boot.

Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2003-03-21 07:50:00 EST
from the log:
apm: BIOS not found.

so there's no way to show apm battery status, your bios doesn't support it.
Comment 5 Shaun Carter 2003-03-21 09:00:48 EST
well that would do it, didn't notice that earlier, sorry.  I'll reflash as soon
as I can get a hold of a USB floppy or figure out how to get the bios bootable
diskette burned to CD.
