Battery Gharge Monitor on RH9

Hi All,

I am having problems with the Batter Charge Monitor 2.2.0 on RedHat 9.

The battery icon shows the battery as being un-charged even when it is fully charged. It also always displays it's self as running on AC power the whole time and not on battery power.

Any suggestions?

You need to recompile the kernel. I had the same problem when I did a fresh install. I downloaded the 2.6.0 kernel and compiled in the ACPI options that I wanted such as battery,fan,automatic power-down. You can probably use an older kernel if you want but I'm not sure when the ACPI options were included
