    battery not recognised


    i have mandrake 9.2 just installed the other day, it says on the kicker that the battery hasnt been recognised when you look at the battery status. Does anyone know why this is?

    You probably don't have APM or ACPI configured into the kernel.

    What's the output of the following commands (as root)?

    Code:
    apm
    acpi

    I had this probelm with Mandrake 9.2 you will have to recompile the kernel with ACPI.

    What kind of laptop do you have?

    Try this website http://www.linux-on-laptops.com/ it lists all laptops that people have attempted at loading Linux on and there solutions to problems they came across.
