Hmmm. I don't know much about APM and I don't know much about ACPI
either. I've discovered aftere I bought my Compaq Presario 700 that it's
ACPI and that the ACPI developement is a bit behind. On the other hand it
works fine, apart from the battery life. Ok then, I don't really
understand what this package does. I've got acpi in /proc and all the
direvotories related to the different acpi devices (battery and what
else), but the event file is empty. SO...does anyone know how does one use
the acpi (or the acpid) package? Or do you know where I can read about
them before I install them?
