  1. APM (or ACPI) on an Acer TravelMate 280 (RH9)

    Hi all,

    APM nor ACPI seem to be working on my TravelMate 280.

    The apmd or acpid deamon doesn't want to start.

    Where to look for a solution?

    Thanks,

    Ton.

    I'm also answering your other posts to this newsgroup;

    Red Hat Linux does not seem to like your laptop's BIOS and PCMCIA
    controller, I know because I also have the same one. Your going to have to
    compile your own kernel in order to get ACPI and PCMCIA working. I suggest
    that you use the latest stable kernel from kernel.org (2.4.22).

    First step is to remove(as root) the broken kernel-pcmcia-cs rpm file;

    $ rpm -e kernel-pcmcia-cs

    Next step is to download the stable kernel-2.4.22 from;

    http://www.kernel.org to your /usr/src directory.

    From the console or xterm session in /usr/src;

    Type; tar -zxpvf kernel-2.4.22.tar.gz

    Type: cd linux

    It is important that kernel build starts with the source tree in a known
    condition.

    Type; make mrproper
    Type; make xconfig

    This open an xterm kernel configuration screen that you can use to
    customize your kernel.

    Click on the Load configuration from File button

    This will open a new window, in this window type in something like the
    following; /boot/config-2.4.20-9

    (I have the same laptop and will email you the laptop config I use if you
    want, see the end of this reply to ask for it)

    Click on the OK button

    The window will close and you will be back at the kernel configuration
    screen.

    Make the changes to disable APM and PCMCIA and enable ACPI by clicking on
    the 'General setup' button (window opens)

    Click on the PCMCIA/Cardbus support button (window opens)

    PCMCIA/Cardbus support is set to n (No)

    Click on the OK button
    (window closes)

    Advanced Power Management BIOS support is set to n (No)

    Click on the ACPI support button
    (window opens)

    ACPI Support is set to y (Yes)
    AC Adapter is set to y (Yes)
    Battery is set to y (Yes)
    Button is set to y (Yes)
    Fan is set to y (Yes)
    Processor is set to y (Yes)
    Relaxed AML Checking is set to y (Yes)

    The rest are set to n (No)

    Click on the OK button
    (window closes)

    Click on the Main Menu button
    (window closes)

    Click on the Save and Exit button
    (window closes)

    You now should be ready to build a new kernel with ACPI support and PCMCIA
    support disabled, now you can build it.

    Type; make dep
    Type; make clean
    Type; make bzImage
    Type; make modules

    This will take a fair amount of time, don't worry, be patient, have a
    drink and maybe something to eat!

    Type; make modules_install
    Type; make install

    This will write a new kernel boot option in grub, the one you just
    finished building and just installed.

    Next download the pcmcia-cs source from;

    http://pcmcia-cs.sourceforge.net/

    From the console or xterm session from the location you stored the
    downloaded pcmcia-cs-3.2.4 package;

    Type; tar -zxpvf pcmcia-cs-3.2.4.tar.gz

    Type; cd pcmcia-cs-3.2.4

    Type; ./Configure

    Answer the following questions like the examples below;

    kernel source directory is: /usr/src/linux

    build trusting versions: n

    include 32-bit cardbus support: y

    PnP BIOS resource checking: n

    Module install dir: /lib/modules/2.4.22

    Now if you want you can start pcmcia services;

    $ service pcmcia start

    Or reboot and PCMCIA will work.


    I stated that if you want I will email you the laptop config file I use
    (far to long to add to this reply), my email address (coded) is.....

    My email name is; lcharters_at_myisp

    And myisp is; SbCgLoBaL.

    This is a net and not a company and everything is lower case.

    Can you show the output of 'lspci -v' and the startup messages from
    the pcmcia-cs drivers? I don't think I've seen this particular
    screw-up by the kernel pcmcia stuff before.

    Hey Lenard!

    Cool that you have the same laptop. At least we can share experiences.
    Beware that i'm a newbie on the linux-front, so.....

    I'll mail you in private with my experiences.

    Ton.


  5. Re: APM (or ACPI) on an Acer TravelMate 280 (RH9)

    Hi Lenard.

    This made ACPI work. Good.I have the battery charge monitor running and
    it works fine. Now i have to assign the events, but i will read that in
    the FAQ, no problem. Thanks for that.

    I still don't have PCMCIA working. service pcmcia start doesn't work.
    The service command cannot be found.
    When i look in /etc/init.d the pcmcia command is not there. When i look
    in /etc/sysconfig, pcmcia has been renamed to pcmcia.rpmsave.

    I have the 02Micro oz6912T-u CardBus controller. Which driver do i use
    in /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia?

    Or maybe you can give me an insight in your config?

    Thanks for the help,

    Ton.

  7. Re: PCMCIA on an Acer TravelMate 280 (RH9)

    Hi Lenard!

    When my system starts it seems to start the pcmcia services, well, at
    least the startup prompt says [OK], although i don't believe it.

    DMESG output is attached (i hope i can send attachments).
    Check the message:
    > hermes.c: 4 Dec 2002 David Gibson
    > ds: no socket drivers loaded!


    /etc/rc.d/rc.pcmcia status tells me that cardmgr is stopped

    /etc/rc.d/rc.pcmcia start tells me Starting PCMCIA services: modprobe:
    Can't locate module yenta_socket

    Maybe i did something wrong or was i missing something when i built the
    new kernel because /sbin/depmod -a gives me:
    depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in
    /lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/crypto/autoload.o
    depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/crypto/proc.o

    I see this message quite often actually. Don't know if it has anything
    to do with this issue.

    I too had the dir as mentioned in
    http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...threadid=62929,
    but removing this dir didn't solve the depmod -a problem.

    Dunno where to look further. Maybe you can send me your config-2.4.22
    file so i can compile the kernel with your settings. Since you are using
    the same hardware, that shouldn't be a problem, no?

    If there is a way we can discuss this by Instant Messenger, please let
    me know. I think that's easier than by mail/news.

    Ton.

    So far so good. Didn't take too long.

    Check your email, actually I've used it from kernel-2.4.21 to my current

    Thanks for that. I keep having problems, though. Now when i make

    Acer has three different BIOS's for the TravelMate 230/280 series and
    maybe different firmware revisions (I don't know for sure).

    I have the R01-A0X BIOS version installed on mine;
    r01-a0x_dos.zip 840 KB 06/11/2003 11:48:00 AM

    You can download it from here(if desired);

    ftp://ftp.support.acer-euro.com/note...e_23x_28x/bios

    If you decide to upgrade the BIOS, you will need a DOS boot floppy with no
    drivers and the files extracted from the zip in order to upgrade the BIOS;
    http://www.bootdisk.com/ (use the DrDOS 7.x one if needed)

    And here's a list of the firmware on mine for comparison, expanded for
    easier reading;

    Also check/modify the USB configuration options for the kernel. You might

    This is different from the laptop.config you have sent me. In this
    config the CONFIG_USB is set to m.
    Can you dump the config you have now and send me the current config of
    your laptop?

    Yea, my fault I copied the settings from my new config file for
    kernel-2.4.23pre6 by mistake, sorry.

    Check your email for the config files. What do you mean by 'the current

    I need to make a small change to support my Orinoco (older card) in the

    Mozilla-1.4 takes care of most of the spam for me. Anti-Virus is not

    product for Linux and I would also suggest that you use the chkrootkit
    tool.

    (these work just fine with RHL9)

    I started all over again with your laptop's config file. I doublechecked
    the USB settings and compiles the kernel. Booted with that kernel.
    Configured the pcmcia package and tried the service pcmcia start. Gave
    me a "pcmcia service not found".
    Read the PCMCIA-HOW-TO, did the make all and make install.
    Make install of the pcmcia package gave me:
    make[2]: Entering directory `/home/ton/pcmcia-cs-3.2.5/etc/cis'
    cp *.dat /etc/pcmcia/cis
    make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/ton/pcmcia-cs-3.2.5/etc/cis'

    Explain. There's not too many options in the BIOS to handle power

    It's basically a PCMCIA modem, so i have to find the drivers for it and

    I don't. Just the internal modem and the GPRS (read 0.50 per minute) modem.

    Yep. Otherwise X doesn't want to start in 1024x768x24 mode.

    I installed xine. Haven't seen it running though. Have to read the man

    I just close the lid and the events happen (BIOS not shown/adjustable),
    for example have look at;

    $ cat /proc/acpi/button/lid/LID/state

    $ cat /proc/acpi/button/lid/LID/info

    Plug it in and gather the information; cardctl ident

    See '$ man cardctl' for the details

    You might have to modify your /etc/rc.d/rc.local file and add something
    like;

    setserial /dev/ttyS1 port 0x02f8 uart 16550A

    Adjust for your modem's actual serial port, read the manpage for the
    details, '$ man setserial'

    I have this:

    Card", "ISL37300P", "RevA"
    manfid: 0x0274, 0x1613

    Which looks like the entry .....

    card "Linksys WPC11 11Mbps 802.11b WLAN Card"
    manfid 0x0274, 0x1613
    bind "orinoco_cs"

    .... in /etc/pcmcia/config to me

    How can i make this card to be recognized?

    >>- Vodafone PCMCIA GPRS modem


    Looks like this:

    function: 2 (serial)

    This looks like a normal serial adapter, no?

    No, these are probably old modules from a previous kernel build.

    It *was* recognized.

    I don't know what was wrong with your PCMCIA stuff before, or exactly
    what you changed, but cardmgr is running, and this card was probably
    configured successfully; check your system log for details.
