I'm having difficulty getting APM to work properly under FreeBSD 3.3
RELEASE and also under FreeBSD 4.0 RELEASE.
I'm trying to get the machine/FreeBSD to catch the power switch and shut
the machine down gracefully. Instead, what happens when APM is enabled
is that the machine powers off immediately.
Hardware: Intel brand i810e motherboard, APM 1.2 (according to
BIOS/POST), Celeron 433, 256M PC-100, Maxtor UDMA/66 30gig, ATX power
I've tried both FreeBSD 3.3 RELEASE and 4.0 RELEASE with no luck.
APM is enabled in the kernel (I compiled it).
apm is enabled in rc.conf
Tried with apmd_enabled as well with no luck.
shutdown -p works fine, powering off the machine as it should.
Suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Also, looking for a good, reliable and inexpensive FCPGA motherboard
that is faster and more reliable than the Intel.
