How do I recompile my kernel...
I am running Slackware 12.2 with Xfce 4.4.3 Desktop. I downloaded the xfce-battery-plugin-0.5.1 and slack packaged it into a .tgz and installpkg the tgz. It worked great. Then when I rebooted, it seems not to be accessing the sensors. The percentage and time remaining on the battery always read 0. Also, kacpid and acpid seem to be running find and battery module has been modprobed.
Also, I'm thinking I have to recompile the kernel because I know that apm support is not enabled. Not sure if that would fix the problem though. In any case how would I recompile a kernel? In the /boot dir are the config-kernel-xxx files. I'd edit those then what?
What else should I be looking at to get this xfce laptop battery plugin working again?
I know the title seems slightly off, I was just thinking, changed my thinking, but forgot to change the title. You can't edit the title.
