Fedora core 1 - APM not detecting battery
Am running fedora core 1 on my laptop, and have had problems getting it to pick up the battery.
Following some posts I'd seen on here, I added "acpi=on" to the appropriate line for the kernel in grub.conf.
Then the next few times I tried to boot, the system stalled half way thru the startup process. (no error, it just stopped dead.)
Eventually, I did manage to boot all the way, logged in, and acpi was running and had picked up the battery.
5 seconds later the system did a windows style freeze up on me. (mouse & keyboard unresponsive)
Fortunatley, I had an older kernel installed (the line for which I didn't edit) and booted into this, removed my ammendments to grub.conf and all is now ok....excpet APM is running not acpi, and APM can't pick up my battery.....
