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.
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.
