|I have a Dell Inspiron 5000 that has worked pretty well with Gentoo so far. One problem that has been pretty annoying is that I am not able to suspend my laptop (when the lid is shut or I press Fn - Esc). When I ran RedHat on my laptop I had no problems with this.
I have apm support complied into the kernel: <*> Advanced Power Management BIOS support
The apmd is on and apm reports the correct information.
AC on-line, battery status high: 100% (3:20)
This error does occur on boot though:
apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x03 (Driver version 1.16)
apm: get_event: Interface not connected
