|The xorg72 development headers are in mydsl testing - xorg72-dev.tar.gz|
I see from the torsmo readme that:
|battery (num) Remaining capasity in ACPI or APM battery. ACPI battery number can be given as argument (default is BAT0).|
- maybe we can switch back to torsmo-0.17 and the users with weird battery numbers can modify their .torsmorc?
BTW, it looks as though the "swap file used" calculation is hard-coded into torsmo-0.18 without a check for zero values, hence the floating point exception when there is no swap file.
Thanks for the info on xorg72
The problems with v0.18 don't seem limited to the swap file issue. Running DSL in an emulator (VirtualBox on M$XP) I get the floating point exception. Torsmo can be started with a command line argument to display individual settings & it 'sometimes' works. There are obviously a quite a few problems with torsmo.
In v0.17 the only variation to the battery name that can be made is to call it BAT0 or BAT1 or BAT2,..... The Libretto (using ACPI not APM) I have calls it MBAT & so v0.17 doesn't work (v0.18 works flawlessly on that machine!).
Conky is looking a better bet as it is currently supported & developed. the version in the repository works OK with DSL in the emulator. I'll report on how it gets on with the Libretto during the next few days.
