I have installed a FreeBSD 5.1 on my Laptop (Compaq Armada E500).
I have a problem with the power management :
- I can't use the ACPI module : the kernel can't be loaded.
OK no problem !
As I saw within many FAQs, it's normal (it depends on the type of the laptop).
- I would like to use APM so !
I realize the following stages (see http://freebsd.unixtech.be/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/articles/laptop/x61.html) :
* I build my kernel with "device apm"
* /boot/device.hints :
* /boot/loader.conf :
But during the boot I get an error : "can't open /dev/apm"
Indeed, there is no device with apm* name within /dev
How can I create this device (there is no possibility to use a kind of makedev ??)
Thanks a lot.
