Subject: BIOS or kernel APM bug?
Date: 22 Sep 2002 21:31:02 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1032744662.6912.69.camel@sirius.strandboge.cxm> (raw)

I recently purchased a usb webcam and found that polling /proc/apm
causes the webcam in xawtv to skip.  I can so this either by doing 'cat
/proc/apm' or using the gnome battstat-applet.  Disabling the
battstat-applet and not touching /proc/apm lets xawtv work fine.

Polling /proc/apm also causes clock drift.

I have a Dell Inspiron 8200 laptop (1.6Ghz Pentium 4).  Using kernel
2.4.18 with rmap12h and preempt-kernel patch.
