"Battery not present" after upgrade Debian etch to Lenny


Hello Everyone,

I had just upgrade from Debian etch to Lenny, i notice the "Battery Charge Monitor stated battery not present, System is running on AC" and i can no more see the charging status of the battery like before. It was working fine when in Debian etch until i perform a dist-upgrade last night.

My hardware is Compaq Presario 2500, is there anyone having the same problem or it is just hardware specific? I will be delighted if help can be given.

Dear Debiantist,

I am quite sure your Debian .config kernel file included the right modules, but you might want to check.

Can you send us the output for the following:
# lsmod | grep -i battery

and to check if there are kernel issues:
# dmesg | grep -i battery

the following might solve your problem

# modprobe ac
# modprobe battery

Read this:

it might help you.

Hi Chris,

I had tried your suggestion and there is no result, so I've decided to re-install Lenny from scratch rather then upgrade from etch. Now everything in working condition. Anyway thanks for sharing.

Cheers

Hi,

I had a lingering doubt if it was just a Windows Manager (KDE?) configuration issue you could easily resolve from some "Control Panel", but I am glad that now it is resolved.
