ACPI won't load for me. Does the stock kernel include support for it? I
see a bunch of acpi options turned on in the kernel config, but I'm not
sure how to use them.
I have a Sony VAIO, PCG-SR33.

It runs very hot. I'd love to do something about it.
i edited /boot/grub/grub.conf. you can see the simple change i made below...
title Fedora Core (2.4.22-1.2115.nptl)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi rhgb acpi=on
# kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl ro root=LABEL=/ hdc=ide-scsi rhgb
and this allowed the battery monitor to work, but i haven't tried monitoring the temperature yet.
i would like to and if this works for you i'd appreciate hearing how you do monitor your temperature.
by the way, i have a fujitsu N3010.
hope this helps,
