slack 9.1+, 2.6.1 kernel, acpi, suspend.. or not?
I compiled 2.6.1 flawlessly and everything is working, except for the fact that my laptop won't suspend anymore. It worked fine in 2.4.22 using apm as a module.
I have a Dell C640 Laptop..
EDIT: I also want to include I have the latest A09 BIOS
ACPI "appears" to be working somewhat, I can get thermal temps, battery status, etc.. however, when I close my laptop lid, it does not suspend. The screen goes blank and I cannot recover without hitting cntrl-alt-del to reboot the machine.
I have read about the C640 needing a new dsdt.. (whatever that is) but I haven't read anything about the new 2.6 kernels.. these were all written for the 2.4 series and included manually compiling acpi into the kernel with a modified dsdt.
Do I need to do that?! *prays*
OR.. Do I just need to configure acpi somehow to react when I close my laptop lid.. is so.. how?
Any help, as always, is very appreciated.
