Re: APM Not Really Compiled Into Debian Kernel

Thanks, Thomas. Yeah, I'm compiling it now, and I set APM to y. I hope the compile works this time; this laptop is so slow. :) My desktop system is still on Windows, and I think compiling a kernel on a different system than the one it's going to be used on is a bit over my head right now. I wonder if I could boot the desktop into a live CD and use clustering to compile it faster...but I imagine getting that set up to work would take longer than waiting for the laptop to compile it. Heh.
