Description of problem:
Both battery monitors (KDE & Gnome) are not working. KLaptop reports
Your computer doesn't have the Linux APM (Advanced Power Management) or ACPI
software installed, or doesn't have the APM kernel drivers installed - check out
the Linux Laptop-HOWTO document for information on how to install APM.
rpm -q apmd
rpm -qa|grep kernel
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install Phoebe with any kernel
2. boot up
Actual Results: battery monitor does not show current charge and says apmd is
Expected Results: battery monitor should show current charge and recognize apmd

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?
dmesg during boot? I can get you the output of dmesg _after_ boot, is that what
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.
Created attachment 90682 [details]
output of dmesg after boot
from the log:
apm: BIOS not found.
so there's no way to show apm battery status, your bios doesn't support it.
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.
