Edgy ACPI problems on Acer Aspire 3000


Until this week I was running Ubuntu 6.06 on my laptop, and everything was working just fine where acpi support was concerned. Just a few days ago I did a fresh install of 6.10 (I was a little board), and now acpi is going crazy on me. The system detects if it is on battery or external power, but it is constantly giving me bad readings of the charge percentage. For example, last night I was running on battery for about 45 minutes, and the whole time it said the battery was at 100%, then it suddenly started saying the battery was at zero. Now this morning I was charging, and for a long time it said the battery was at 66%, then it suddenly jumped to 100%. Other than this problem, my upgrade to 6.10 had been great. Has anyone heard about the cause of this problem?

I've read about some acpi problems in edgy. You can try to compile another kernel, wait for upgrades or jump back to Dapper.

I've custom compiled kernels before (not something I would wish upon my worst enemy), and I'd rather just wait until ubuntu puts out an acpi update. I'll stick with edgy though, because I can just run off external power until that update comes.

Actually, compiling kernels in Debian based systems is a lot easier. I just compiled one to stop a silly bug from the official sources. Just download them, reconfigure the options and you're 2 commands away.
