I have SUSE 6.2 on a laptop. Installed APM and loading it as a module. However system says this kernal does not support apm. Any ideas anyone.
   Wasn't a problem under Red_Hat 6.0, Red Hats kernal had the support.

For APM, You'll have to recompile the kernel...
What LapTop is it? maybe you'll need to patch some parts of the kernel sources.
There is a page 'bout Linux on laptops on http://www.cs.utexas.edu/users/kharker/linux-laptop/ with lots of useful stuff on it...

Thank's. I sussed out the answer. I couldn't get the kernel to recompile because I hadn't installede the sources. Done it now, didn't relise that the facility was trhere in the menus for APM support, thought I had to do some programming!!
