Full Version: Is the backup battery status info available?
OESF Portables Forum > Everything Else > Archived Forums > Distros, Development, and Model Specific Forums > Zaurus Distro Support and Discussion > Angstrom & OpenZaurus
I was just scanning through the logfile (with logread something like that) and stumbled upon the following message:

Dec 13 10:41:50 openzaurus syslog.warn klogd: check backup battery !

Where does this information come from and can the end user access it (I thought I'd add it to the battery applet)?

I also have the message "check backup battery!" in dmesg.

But how do I go about checking the backup battery?

Check the battery driver source code in the kernel. I don't know how much information you can get out of it, but it would be nice if that could be exported via apm to userland.
