Re: enabling apm on laptop

Okay, so this isn't enough to solve the problem. I've
added apm on a new line to /etc/modules and added
append="apm=on" to lilo.conf (b4 running lilo...) BUT
/proc/apm doesn't exist, so when I try and run apm I
get the message 'No APM support in kernel'. Am I going
to have to reconfigure the kernel (how?) or what?

advance...You need to load the APM module. Add the
line:apmto your /etc/modules file. Or, if your laptop
has ACPI, enable those modules instead. Also, to avoid
rebooting, you can also load APM immediately as root
with the command:modprobe apmHTH. :)-- Darryl L.
