Several problems with ACPI 3.20.01

Reported by: melf Owned by: David Azarewicz
Priority: major Milestone: Feedback pending
Component: Daemon Version: 3.20.01

Installed it over my 3.19.15 version. After reboot, the version number at boot up still showed 3.19.15. My config.sys entry of the old powerman was still there. I opened warpin and deinstalled the whole ACPI-package. I then ran the acpi-warpin again and checked the files, turned out that some were new and some old. Although I had chosen "unlock all" this apparently didn't work. I used wpiview to extract the files from the 3.20.01 package and manully exchanged every relevant file to be the one from that package. (I had to manually REM the old powerman entry in config.sys). Rebooted and the version number was correct and everything seemed to work fine. However power reduction worked bad. Temperature just going down very slow and not lower than 76C (normal is 62C). Also Resume didn't work.

I have converted back to 3.19.14, which works well together with standalone powerman.

Forgot: On a Thinkpad T43 (2669) using eCS2.1

UPDATE: Seems to be an explanation to the fact the files were not exchanged. When I looked in the preferences for my warpin it was set to "skip file" either the existing file was older or newer than the one going to be installed. No wonder nothing happened. Have no idea how this setting come to be that way....

I'll try a new install of 3.20.01 and see what happens. I'll report back.

UPDATE 2: Well, forget about install problems. However, the other reported issues are as described above, i.e. resume not working and bad temp. reducing.

What problem is this ticket reporting?

From your description of the power manger it appears to be working correctly.

Suspend / resume is an unsupported feature at this time.

3.20.01 is 2 revisions old now. Please try the current version.
