SuSE 8.1 Pro ACPI
Posted 25 February 2003 - 08:44 PM
I need someone expert about compiling the kernel
When in X the battery is with X and says that i need at least to enable control method battery and AC adaptor
I compiled the kernel all ACPI apm are enabled but still no dice
Checking for apmd:unused
No APM support in kernel
Linux SoftParade 2.4.19-4GB #1 Wed Sep 25 18:58:10 UTC 2002 i686 unknown
Acpid is the only one that seems to run.
( ) Within the bios there's nothing about ACPI APM
Cause it's a new laptop
I have to add that before i log into X if i press the button to
suspend the monitor goes off but when i log in X there's no action at all.
Anyone ? Any help will be grateful

Last time i tried i had a kernel panic about VFS cant mount root fs on 03:02 i think ...
I use Grub
My steps were :
make menuconfig|changes|make dep|make clean|make bzImage|make
modules|cp /boot/vmlinuz /boot/vmlinuz.old|cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage
/boot/vmlinuz|Grub ( where's the make modules_install ) and within
grub> root (hd0,1) | setup (hd0,1) | kernel /boot/vmlinuz | boot
(distro:Suse 8.1 Pro) on Laptop Compaq Presario 2800series

Also, 'make clean' should preceed 'make dep'

I Did chainloader(hd0,1)+21 and went all good
Still no apm support by kernel acpi not at all ( should i try apm acpi =on as well ? ) Even the dmesg rcapmd status unused etc
Or i should try the patch ( which one should i get for my distro ) or update my kernel ( which one again )

Patch it to 2.4.20-pre4: http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.4/testing/patch-2.4.21-pre4.bz2
Patch it with the ACPI patch: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/acpi/acpi-20030218-2.4.21-pre4.diff.gz?download
Patch it with the kernel-level suspend patch: http://fchabaud.free.fr/English/Tricks/Laptop/Swsusp/patch-acpi-acpi20030125-swsusp18.gz
'make menuconfig' The additional options for APCI will be present.
In the mean time, read the documentation on the pages above. Read it all.

Well i always get a kernel panic VFS about mount root VFS n' stuff after every make dep of my kernel.
And i go through lots to deal with the panic kernel which i can deal with it
But i cant keep the compiled kernel for the reason i've told you before
I load manualy de default kernel , then i reconfigure man too the grub
and so on and i can work again w/o install again But still no dice with the compile
() I'm on SuSE 8.1 pro ( no other os's , just linux in the whole hdd )

Allright with the kernel.Acpi/bluetooth/irda
Every thing works great , like Rock
The steps to deal with the kernel panic were ( if you configured with reiserFS / scsi emulation within the kernel's options otherwise these were the causes ) are
a) root (hd0,1)
b) setup (hd0,1)
e) chainloader (hd0,1)+1 ( or +21 )
