Arrrgh *smacks head repeatedly against wall* I've been compliling different kernels for the past week trying to get ACPI to work on my Acer 1350LC Laptop. I have enabled the ACPI support in the kernel and compiled, ACPI seems to load okay but I have no /proc/acpi folder, and the mystical "Turn... off... automatically... at... shutdown" feature doesn't work along with not being able to view how much battery life I've got left, it's a pain because it means I've got to run the laptop with my power lead plugged in, not very portable.
I have complied multiple kernels with ACPI support
installed ACPID and it still doesn't work... I'm starting to wish I had never bothered with Mandrake Linux 9.2, SuSE 9.0 is better it just doesn't like my graphics card so if anybody can help me I'd be forever in their debt and may just buy them a cheese sandwich or something.
