from my XF86Config file...

(WW) Open APM failed (/dev/apm_bios) (No such file or directory)

But my kernel config says...

The only thing unusual is I am running devfs..
so i checked /dev

heliosphan dev # find . -name *apm*

/dev/misc/apm_bios has perms:

crw-------    1 mutex    root      10, 134 Dec 31  1969 apm_bios

are those normal permissions ? Also, I'm running an enlightenment
battery applet which afaik uses apm layer to report battery level. So
something has to be working.
