No battery charge running Mandriva on Toshiba


Just installed Mandriva 2008.1 on my Toshiba Satellite A60. Super easy install, everything works except the battery doesn't charge, it will only run off AC. The kpowersave GUI was installed, but does not open. Please help!

What do you get when you type kpowersave in the konsole? Copy and paste the output here to this thread.

This is what shows up, from the root shell (from the non-root konsole it just returns "KPowersave is already running!":
