I;'ve tried this kernel version and the patch.. without any luck:
still no battery
(This on an ACER 5024WLMi, by the way.. what irritates me is that I just booted
from the Ubuntu live CD, and did see the battery..
Would you be so kind as to post or mail your kernel configuration ?
Also: the Ubuntu distribution has a 1280x800 resolution on this
hardware, which I can't seem to reproduce (At least, not with the
modern Xfree config.. ) Could some one give me a pointer to a working
configuration ? (I used to be able to compute modelines by hand. Don't
see anywhere I can put a modeline these days.)
Thanks in advance
