ACPI Installation and Configuration


I've just recompiled my kernel in an attempt to get acpi working (I have a laptop and want to monitor the battery). I've set up the kernel to include acpi and not apm, and also loaded the acpi options (battery, ac etc) as modules. However, when I boot up, I'm still being told that I have a partial ACPI installation. I have acpid running, so what's gone wrong?

Also, when I boot my new kernel I'm receiving error messages saying pcmcia isn't installed, although I did select yes to it in the kernel configuration. Have I missed something?

Regards,
Rioch

Well, you didn't post what distro. But, your info says Suse 8.2....

so your missing the fact that Suse 8.2 already has acpi fully compiled and enabled?

SuSE 9.0 now

If it's already installed and enabled, why does KLaptop say "...Only a partial acpi installation, you need to rebuild the kernel...blah blah?"

From a clean install. You just turn on acpid in suse 8.2. That's it, its all set and ready then. If KLaptop doesnt like it stil, then yuo don't have an acpi system
