2 questions about kernel26mm4 and APM

1. I switched to apm and all works perfectly untill i try to poweroff. Linux shutdown all processes and stops, but notebook didn't switched off.. How to force apm to really powerdown the computer?
2. With new kernel (mm4) i have strange additions to the beginning of all kernel's boot lines: [00000012.34324324] << something like this. It is normal?

Re: 2 questions about kernel26mm4 and APM

i have the answer to your second question:

i enabled CONFIG_PRINTK_TIME=y since the mm4 kernel26mm to be able to know how long processes take in the kernel. this prints a time for every printk message done by the kernel. you can then find out, how long it takes from one action to the other. this does not slow down anything (well, it does, but the effect is hardly measureable) nor does it make any trouble otherways. so to answer your question: yes, this is normal ;-)

i also informed about this in this thread:
http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?t=10945
but it seems that i needed to be more explicite

Re: 2 questions about kernel26mm4 and APM

by the way: if you don0t like the kernel to print lot of things to the console while booting, you can pass the parameter quiet to the kernel in lilo or grub

for example lilo:

image=/boot/vmlinuz26mm
        label=a26mm
        root=/dev/discs/disc0/part2
        read-only
        vga=792
        append="devfs=nomount quiet" 

The impossible missions are the only ones which succeed.
