I activated acpi on my IBM Thinkpad T40p. ACPI it meant for device
enumaration only and, indeed, the power saving functions nor the battery
applet did work.
Inspecting /var/log/messages I found:
Nov 1 14:26:09 ibmLaptop kernel: ACPI-0178: *** Warning: The ACPI
AML in your computer contains errors, please nag the manufacturer to
Nov 1 14:26:09 ibmLaptop kernel: ACPI-0181: *** Warning: Allowing
relaxed access to fields; turn on CONFIG_ACPI_DEBUG for details.
Nov 1 14:26:09 ibmLaptop kernel: ACPI: Interpreter enabled
Is the AML (ACPI Machine Language) issue related to the DSDT issues,
which has been reported here several times? I couldn't determine it
based on the information I found on the ACPI project pages and INTEL's.
And how to correct it or is it even necessary to correct? I suppose a
kindly letter for Mr. Palmisano will not help so much :-).
