ACPI on puppy linux


How is ACPI supported in Puppy Linux? Is it inbuilt into the kernel or is it supported externally? And, what is the version of kernel that puppylinux supports?

Thanks for your help..

I am using version 2.0.2. I did some more "googling" and found that it uses kernel version "2.6". I think ACPI is supported in this version. Just wanted to confirm.

Also, I was able to load Puppy Linux onto a USB stick and boot the system from the USB. Question is ,

How do I use the ACPI capability to suspend-to-RAM (S3) state and wake it up from S3?

Any ideas?

To find out the exact kernel version, including patchlevel, open a terminal and type "uname -a". This should work in every Linux or Unix-type OS.

Puppy has ACPI enabled, and it may work depending on your hardware. You'll get more detailed info by (a) asking in the hardware section of the Puppy forum at murga.org and (b) finding out, by searching clusty.com, exactly how broken your hardware's ACPI implementation is.

Cheers,
Mark
