Re: enabling apm on laptop
Okay, so 'uname -r' yields 2.4.19 and modprobe does
exist (wasn't running it as root...) but 'modprobe
apm' yields the response modprobe: Can't locate module
apm. Now I have apm installed and it's in the file
/etc/modules BUT I cannot find a compiled file apm.o
in /lib/modules/2.4.19 or any of its subdirectories...
SO WHAT NOW?
