apm on Thinkpad

Since acpi doesn't seem to work well on my Thinkpad T23, I've decided to switch to apm.  I've installed apmd, edited the grub menu.lst with acpi=off apm=on.  It suspends successfully, but when I want to wake it up again the system is frozen and shows a muddled desktop.

I read somewhere in these forums that apm isn't compiled in the 2.6.9 kernel, which I'm using; modprobe apm says module not found.  Does this mean I have to compile my own kernel?  And if so, is there a good guide to doing so that someone could recommend?

Thanks very much.

Re: apm on Thinkpad

I have the following in my /boot/kconfig26

#
# APM (Advanced Power Management) BIOS Support
#
CONFIG_APM=y
# CONFIG_APM_IGNORE_USER_SUSPEND is not set
CONFIG_APM_DO_ENABLE=y
# CONFIG_APM_CPU_IDLE is not set
# CONFIG_APM_DISPLAY_BLANK is not set
# CONFIG_APM_RTC_IS_GMT is not set
# CONFIG_APM_ALLOW_INTS is not set
# CONFIG_APM_REAL_MODE_POWER_OFF is not set

That is using the default 2.6.9-1 arch built kernel.
