Question ACPI and Compaq presario


hi,

I've a compaq presario 1200 and I installed gentoo linux

I have a small problem concerning ACPI.

I've just compiled kernel version 2.4.25 (gentoo-sources-2.4.25-r2) disabling APM and enabling ACPI. Everything works perfectly, but the directory /proc/acpi/battery is empty! the status of AC_ADAPTER changes when I disconnect the cable, but ACPI doesn't seem to be able to find the battery. The battery is not compatible with ACPI (so I have no chances...) or I can do something?

Thank you!

I know I might come off as being smart when I say this, but did you enable the battery module in the kernel config? Im assuming you built the ACPI support in the kernel, instead of enabling it as a module?

I was wandering if the problem was that, and I immediately checked if I enabled the battery support as a module, but it was not the case... It seems just that ACPI doesn't find any battery on my system: if I disconnect the cable of power supply, the status of AC_ADAPTER changes, but /proc/acpi/battery remains empty...

Hmmm, unplug it sometime, and head to the terminal, and do 'acpi' (without the quotes) and see what output it gives you. When I do that, its says 'BAT0 Discharging, 3:25 remaining' or something to that effect.
