I have a Linux red had with 2.4.21-47.0.1.ELsmp kernel. This server is running in a vmware virtual machine. The problem is the APM module. It's not installed.

When I execute
#> apm

It says "No APM support in kernel"

I have recompiled the kernel setting the options with:
#> make menuconfig

And checking in "General setup --->" all the options in[*] Advanced Poer Magament BIOS support

I compiled the kernel with:
#>make dep
#>make clean
#>make bzImage
#>make modules
#>make modules_install
#>make install

And the new kernel it's configured in /boot/grub/menu.lst with
apm=on acpi=off

I boot the computer with the new kernel and it works, but it keeps saying "No APM support in kernel", and the APM shutdown still doesn't work.

Anyone has any idea about what shuld I do?
