powerstat just won't work in Wheezy.
How this package got tested before the initial upload? There are only a
few days delay between the _two_ uploads.
Forgot to Cc: the bug in my earlier replies to Mehdi.
So, originally, we extensively tested this on Ubuntu on 3.2 and 3.4
kernels, however, we had omitted to test with /proc/acpi/battery
disabled which was bad oversight on my behalf. Subsequently for the
0.1.17-1 changes I've tested this on Wheezy + unstable updates + also
with Ubuntu with 3.4 and 3.5 kernels on a range of 4 laptops which
handle the battery status differently - a Dell, Lenovos and a HPMini.
Hope that clarifies things.
