  1. Bug#480707: linux-image-2.6.25-1-686: 2.6.25-1 does not give me any battery info

    Package: linux-image-2.6.25-1-686
    Version: 2.6.25-1
    Severity: important


    Hi there,

    In this laptop I have consecutive kernels working without problem, but
    with the latest linux-image-2.6.25-1-686 KDE's laptop monitoring
    service (that looks into the battery status) refuses to start up. I
    guess that ACPI info is missing, but I didn't really check anything that
    could be causing this, just came back to 2.6.24. Yet, feel free to ask
    me anything if you need, and I'll check it out.

    Best regards,
    Marcos Marado

    Thanks for your reply. I only now knew about #463253, so now I understand that
    this is because a deprecated interface was removed. I agree with one comment
    on that bug report, tho: the right way to do this would be filing bugs
    against all relevant packages, add a tracking bug and when all apps have been
    ported to the new interface, remove the deprecated interface from the kernel.

    Anyway, I'm going to fill a bug against klaptopdaemon, so please do with this
    bug report what you think is best (closing it, I would guess).
