Unhappy How do I enable APM in RedHat 7.3?

How do I do that? I need to do it so my system shuts down all the way.

Here is what I have done so far with no luck:


make menuconfig

Then I put a "M" in the General settings of the menu, saved it and exited.

make dep && make clean && make modules && make modules install.

After doing all of that, the computer still won't shut off.

Yes, I also tried compiling a new kernel, but that went no where. I had to install RH 7.3 again to boot into Xwindows. I am not a kernel guru.

when I do lsmod, this is what I get:

Module Size Used by Tainted: P
sr_mod 16920 0 (autoclean)
emu10k1 63968 0 (autoclean)
ac97_codec 11936 0 (autoclean) [emu10k1]
sound 71916 0 (autoclean) [emu10k1]
soundcore 6692 7 (autoclean) [emu10k1 sound]
agpgart 39456 3 (autoclean)
NVdriver 1066272 10 (autoclean)
binfmt_misc 7556 1
autofs 12132 0 (autoclean) (unused)
8139too 16480 1
mii 2408 0 [8139too]
ipchains 43528 11
ide-scsi 9664 0
scsi_mod 108608 2 [sr_mod ide-scsi]
ide-cd 30272 0
cdrom 32224 0 [sr_mod ide-cd]
mousedev 5312 1
hid 21344 0 (unused)
input 5984 0 [mousedev hid]
usb-uhci 24452 0 (unused)
usbcore 73216 1 [hid usb-uhci]

I also did "modprobe apm" which said that apm module is not installed.

And no, halt -p and poweroff don't work either. They just get to the point where the last thing it says is "Power Off". And it just hangs there, I have to hit the power button to shut the computer down.

Here is a mistake you made in the step
make modules install should read
make modules_install
