with APM I have no battery monitor, but with ACPI I lose my wireless connection
I am using Slackware 10.0 on a Gateway 400vtx laptop. I installed using the bare.i kernel from CD1 (uses APM) and am pleased with everything except it will not give me the percentage of battery charged.
When typing "apm" in a terminal it replies: "AC on-line, no system battery" even though it is not plugged in and is only running on batteries.
Klaptop allows me to set suspend, standby, and low battery warnings (though I have not run the battery down yet to test whether they work)
I followed advice from another forum and installed the bareacpi.i kernel as well to try that. When it boots up, my battery monitor works great, but suddenly I lose my wireless Internet. (It works fine with the bare.i kernel) When typing "iwconfig" I am told "no wireless interfaces".
Any ideas? I do not see, when I boot the acpi kernel, the rc.M file called like I do with just the bare.i kernel. That is the file that sets my MAC address and IP.
Thank you in advance for any help that can be given.
