Battery issue - ASUS EEEPC 900


When I boot my recently installed Fedora v.11 I receive following alert:

"Battery might be damaged as it has very low capacity - 1%. It could mean it's old or broken"

Now, I'm 100% sure that the battery is ok, used it under other distros like Puppy Linux and EEEBuntu and there was no problem. As I presume wrong/old driver (?) might cause this allert, but I couldn't find any reference topic on

I remember I had similar problem with Ubuntu installed on this laptop and it was one of the reasons I've decided to switch to EEEBuntu and on EEEBuntu there wasn't any problems with battery at all. Maybe someone could help me to fix this problem?

Thank you in advance!
