I have Suse 8.2 running on my new Dell Inspiron 300M. However, ACPI is
only barely working. I can boot and I have acpid running but when KDE
starts up, it can't detect the battery level and neither standby nor
Suse claims to have patched the 2.4 kernel with the ACPI support but the
kernel parameters like acpi=force don't seem to work
I've never compiled a kernel before, so I'm a little intimidated by the
prospect described in the 2 pages I could find on this machine:
I'm attaching the output from
acpidmp FACP | acpitbl
acpidmp DSDT | acpidisasm
Any help would be deeply appreciated.
