I've got a *very minor* problem. In fact, it's almost so trivial it's
cosmetic, but if there is an easy fix it would be one less nuisance!
ACPI is working SPLENDIDLY (2.4.21-pre<something> + acpi patches) and
I'm very happy with it. It does, however, think my battery has a "design
capacity" much higher than it actually is. This results in various
scripts I've written, as well as the Gnome battery applet thinking it's
always only 71% full even when it's fully charged and a-ok. It does the
same with my spares of the same make/model. Below is the output
(/proc/acpi/batter/BAT1/info) for the battery in my Gateway Solo 1450X.
The design capacity should be right around what the "last full capacity"
says. I've confirmed this on Sanyo's site. I would like to note that
everything is **perfect** with a different Sanyo model battery that is a
"extra capacity" battery. Is there any source I can diddle? Proc entries
I can echo some magic number into? etc? Thanks!
