Weird Battery Monitor with FC6 and Acer Aspire 5601
I have installed Fedora Core 6 onto my Acer Aspire 5601, and it works well, except the battery monitor appears to be broken.
When I am on battery power, it only reports how much battery is remaining to the nearest 33%, and with that gives a life of either 1 or 3 hours. When it is plugged in and charging, it gives more accurate figures (closest 15-20% or so) and with that says that if I was to unplug my laptop, it would have a two minute life.
I have made sure that I have the correct kernel architecture for what it should, an i686 kernel installed.
What is causingt his problem and can anything be done to rectify and fix it?
