Alexander--I do realize I was responding to a message from November of
last year. I did not think that would be an issue--I apologize. I was
also already aware of the 440GX problem which Alan Cox mentioned, but
that was for Fedora Core 1. Besides, the problem I am having is similar
to what you were experiencing under Fedora Core 3. So, have you worked
around it or are you on different hardware and/or software now? My
system is an acpi system and not apm, so acpi is working correctly. I
think I'm going to have to take this issue to the devel list as I think
it is a bit low-level. Any details?
