I can't find apm
I try to make apm working and I can't !
I buy an hp zt1201s and I install debian woody on it.
Now I try to use apm but linux can't find the apm bios.
Perhaps bios in on the hard disk, so I install windows again
with the reset cd.
I install windows and I can see how the battery is.
it's possible !
With fdisk I erase hda2 [a 19GB partition] and I let the very beginnig
of the hard disk (8 MO) and the /dev/hda1 "OS/2 hidden C: drive"
partition for memory recovery after sleeping.
I put lilo on /dev/hda2
(not /dev/hda : there is a diagnostic program inside the bios)
I write append="apm=on apm=power-off" in my lilo.conf and make lilo.
But I can't sucess any apm command.
When I type poweroff the laptop halts but do not power off.
I must use the switch
There is no /proc/apm file
And dmesg | grep apm sends "apm: BIOS not found"
How can I manage the battery ?
Thanks a lot.
