I'll try the latest kernel too then, as the 2.6.1-1.65 can't seem to get
battery info properly :

# cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT0/*

remaining capacity:      0 mAh
present voltage:         0 mV

(I get the same for the 2nd battery, when inserted)
This is on a Dell Inspiron 8600 with ACPI. When running the gnome battery
applet, it fills my kernel logs with :

-0091: *** Error: ut_allocate: Attempt to allocate zero bytes
