My motherboard requires the use of APM. Enabling ACPI kill my video. 'make menuconfig' does not allow user to enable APM support even though the source code is in the kernel source tree.
Under power management configuration menu there is support for ACPI only.
Platform is AMD64.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.make menuconfig or genkernel all with menuconfig
Unable to enable APM support in the kernel because it is missing in the
APM should be displayed under the power management menu structure in
menuconfig/xconfig etc. Right now only support for ACPI is available.
upstream problem, apm support hasn't been ported to x86_64
*** Bug 50450 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
as sven said this is an upstream problem, I will check out its current status.
Thanks, I (and probably a bunch of others) appreciate it. In the meantime I'll try playing with what little ACPI BIOS settings I have to see if I can get around the video killing issue.
Ok, I've had no luck playing with the ACPI BIOS settings, and I am running the latest/greatest BIOS.
So any word on APM support yet?
