Here's the story. My home machine dual boot win98 - RH6.2 has two hd's, and when I boot Redhat(unmodified kernel), it says something akin to
hda: APM. Get Event not present.
when the hard drives are intialised. Hda is the Win98 disk.
Once up and running I don't have the apmd daemon active.
AFAIK this is for laptops??
Then the bad things start to happen. When running mc it will often give messages like: apm. can't enter expected state.
And when running pppd under GNOME, I've had two serious lock ups, where the whole thing dies and I can't even ctrl-alt to other terminals. Have to do a manual power-off. And nothing really shows up in /var/log/messages when I get back in. From memory this has happened a couple of times AFTER I have accessed hda1, which is mounted under Linux, but it doesn't always happen.
Shutdown -r and shutdown -h seem to be able to reset and turn off. Ok, so any ideas?? Sorry about the lack of hard info, just give me an idea what you think MIGHT be a cause and i'll try track stuff down.
X.free. Anyone know where XFREE4.0.1 places the modelines/timings which used to be in /etc/X11/XF86Config ?? I need to shift my picture horizontally without using the monitor hardware aiming.
