Does anyone have any experience with getting ACPI working?
I have what is identified as Mitac VT8235 ACPI on my notebook. I've currently got SuSE 8.1 which claims to come with APM and ACPI support enabled in the kernel. However, the various apps that I've tried - the KDE power management, acpid
, I think one or two others - don't seem to recognise that there is any ACPI there at all.
I don't think I actually have APM on this machine so I really do need ACPI working. Any ideas?I freely admit to being utterly crap at recompiling kernels, so I'd rather avoid that if possible...
