#4623 closed bug (fixed)

ACPI Errors when accessing Battery ACPI data

Reported by: thetick Owned by: tqh
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: Drivers/ACPI Version: R1/alpha1
Keywords: Cc: bergep@…, fredrik.holmqvist@…

Has a Patch: no Platform: All

Description

When I launch PowerStatus nothing is installed in tracker after clicking the install button. I noticed the following in syslog. ACPI is enabled in the kernel settings all other parms are the defaults.

This is an IBM Thinkpad A22m with a fully functional ACPI working with Linux and Windows.

Sorry if I picked the wrong Component field for this issue but there was no ACPI or Power option under the System or Driver section.

I attached "grep -i acpi syslog" test file since cut and paste from the terminal does not seem to perserve returns with Bezilla and Trac.

Does this look like a dup of #4152?

Replying to michael.weirauch:

Does this look like a dup of #4152?

Looks very similar. I'll have to try the fix and reopen if not fixed. You may make this issue as a duplicate. Thanks!

Wow battery info works great with hrev34909! Thanks for the update. The powerstatus applet now works great on my Thinkpad. This issue can be closed.

I want to keep it, since there are still minor fixes to do, when it doesn't manage to read data from EC controller. But it should at least work 'ok' as is.

Hmm. I did notice that the powerstatus sometimes switches to grey and may have bogus status for awhile. I also noticed my extremely fast responding desktop become extremely sluggish. Just closing the power status brought back my fast desktop. Could this be case you mentioned above? By the way nothing was added to the syslog.

Yes, at least the wrong values, but I think it can result in slowdowns as well.

(If anyone want to take a stab at it, as it is not on the top of my list atm, go ahead. It's the ACPI Embedded controller and maybe the driver for powerstatus that still needs work.)

#5244 has a nice description of what happens when it bails out.

I've been runningr36511 for a few hours now and this fix looks good. My battery data appears to be stable and correct. Thanks.
