Would it be possible to test that one again (maybe copy the binary over)? I guess we can only ask andrewb (I think he compiled that one).
|- I don't know, I was using the version that came with earlier versions of dsl-3.4.x|
I used the gcc with libs compiler from the repository & followed the instructions in the files downloaded from sourceforge (i.e. run './configure' followed by 'make', followed by './torsmo'). I got the floating point exception when I used it running DSL on VirtualBox under Windoze XP, but it worked flawlessley on my laptop (Libretto 100CT). I reported both of these when I submitted the 0.18 version. Nothing was changed so it should be easy enough to recompile is you want to check.
You should try running torsmo from a terminal window to see what errors appear. This will tell you whether it is able to read the battery data (i.e the battery directory is set correctly).
I have just tried adding a swapfile to DSL running on the virtual machine & torsmo 0.18 works OK there - no floating point exceptions. (still waiting for 3.4.6 to download so i can't comment on the swapfile fix Robert has implemented there).
From memory the battery/AC state on the libretto does change automatically, but there can be a lag when plugging/unplugging the mains
