my first problem as a newbie in linux and thus my first thread.
the story is abit longer than stated in the title:
i installed recently slackware 10.2 with kernel version 2.4.31.
yesterday i decided to update the kernel in 126.96.36.199. seems like i did everything right and my system reboots nicely again etc. but i ended up not being able to shutdown the pc. so now when i shutdown -h now, i get the full (proper) halting process, but the pc never switches off, it really reboots!
searching through the forums here i tried the following:
1) if i type in bash 'apm' i get the response: no APM support in kernel - looks pretty obvious to me whats going on here.. however i felt i went thoroughly through the menuconfig steps, reading the help in almost all options available to me prior to choosing whether to install, or not, or make them modular.
2) it was suggested in the forums to do mobprobe apm but when i do that i get the response
FATAL : module apm not found
3) so i cd /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and i uncommented the apm support line '/sbin/modprobe apm'. i restarted but no luck.
so i need to know if it is i didn't enable some option in menuconfig. to make things a little easier i copy-pasted all of the power management section of .config here. hope this will help.
Thanks in advance everyone!
