I have been trying to get my laptop (a Toshiba L25-S1192) to read the battery status, but have as of yet failed. ACPI appears to be working, the kernel correctly identifies there is a battery present, as well as the power button and lid switch. It also properly catches the event of pressing the power button once, and shuts down. However, I have not found a way to get it to get the battery status. I do get the following in /var/log/messages:
Dec 21 22:11:44 localhost kernel: ACPI-0508: *** Error: Method execution failed [\_SB_.BAT1._BST] (Node d7e8d500), AE_NOT_FOUND
Dec 21 22:12:14 localhost kernel: ACPI-0339: *** Error: Looking up [Z00D] in namespace, AE_NOT_FOUND
Dec 21 22:12:14 localhost kernel: search_node d7e8d600 start_node d7e8d600 return_node 00000000
I am currently using Ubuntu Breezy, with a custom 22.214.171.124 kernel. Can this problem be fixed with a custom dsdt table? I have tried the ACPI options as modules, and compiling them straight in, with and without toshiba ACPI support (just in case) - neither has any effect.
My ACPI kernel config:
# ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) Support
# CONFIG_ACPI_SLEEP is not set
# CONFIG_ACPI_HOTKEY is not set
# CONFIG_ACPI_PROCESSOR is not set
# CONFIG_ACPI_ASUS is not set
# CONFIG_ACPI_IBM is not set
# CONFIG_ACPI_DEBUG is not set
# CONFIG_X86_PM_TIMER is not set
# CONFIG_ACPI_CONTAINER is not set
Thanks in advance
