ACPI on Samsung x15 mandrake 10 *&"^£*&^


Hello guys,

I have waited for mandrake 10 to offer better acpi support, but after installing the new mdk 10, the exactly the same message displayed on the klaptop battery monitor:

You have a partial install of acpi, some sub functions needs to be enabled, AC_Adaptor etc etc...

I tried the combination of adding acpi=on, acpi=force etc to lilo config, and checked the acpi service is running.

Now what else is there to configure???

Can some of the technical guys please help me out, I am getting really annoyed.

I suggest you to recompile your kernel and enable in it all the ACPI (including ac adaptor etc...).

Try adding nolapic the the lilo.conf file. Then reboot and all should be well.

nope, still not working.

How do I turn AC_Adaptor on and Control Method function?

BTW, will it help if I upgrade the laptop's BIOs??
