Hello,

I would like to know when will work APM on SMP machines?
I use Dell  workstation 400 with 2 P2 CPUs.
When I remove one CPU APM works, when I have 2 in case APM
doesn't work

I can't use ACPI, because this machine doesn't support it.

apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x03 (Driver version 1.16)
apm: disabled - APM is not SMP safe.

Thanks for fixing and reply - it's very uncomfortable
switch off computer manually :(

Michal

root@codeman:[/] # modinfo -p apm
......
smp int, description "Set this to enable APM use on an SMP platform. Use with 
caution on older systems"
......

Did you try this? (2.4.21 and above)

ciao, Marc

in your /etc/lilo.conf

append="apm=smp apm=power-off"
