Acpi on hp pavilion laptop under Mdk 9.2?
Hi all, I've been installing mdk 9.2 recently, because I got weird problems trying to update from redhat 9 to fedora, and went with mdk instead.
I'm the happy posessor of an HP pavilion ze4400, and most of what I need works fine with the stock kernel. But I'm a bit upset because I can't get the acpi and acpid services to actually run.
I'm trying to recompile my kernel from the standard mdk sources, but apparently there's a problem, because even when I run my custom kernel, there's no folder named /proc/acpi which would indicate a usable acpi detection.
I used to have it working in RH9, and I expected to have it working in mdk too, once the custom kernel was recompiled... However I seemed to be wrong in my assumption.
If anybody would help, I would appreciate it.
Also, another question, not related to acpi, regarding a USB webcam... I have a DSB-C310 from D-Link. It's supposed to work with the OV511 module, but it doesn't seem to work at all. The webcam has a microphone integrated, and somehow I think that's the reason it screws up. Another USB-related problem is my Memory key... it used to work, but it doesn't anymore... and I'm still using the stock kernel, so I'm a bit lost regarding what's wrong.
Any help appreciated. I don't really care too much about the webcam and memory key as of yet, but just in case had any info on having that working...
