== Feature support matrix ==
I think it would be a good idea to reflect the supported fetures on each machine in a matrix. The listing is really complex.
Something like that:
''Moved to article page so that people don't update the wrong copy.''
Good idea. Care to help converting the current data? While at it, we need a new "battery status" column for the new features in tp_smapi 0.09.

Of course i will help you.
Should we have a "Kernel version" column too?
--[[User:Micampe|Micampe]] 09:33, 13 Dec 2005 (CET)
I don't think so. There should be no things like: battery_status works with kernel 2.6.13 but not with 2.6.14. If i'am wrong, correct me.
Beautiful work! I'll move it to the article soon.

Revision as of 00:39, 15 December 2005

Great, great work! Really! This completely rocks. I just stopped my battery from charging at 77% and restarted charging a bit later, no problems whatsoever. BTW, this is on kernel

--spiney 21:25, 5 Dec 2005 (CET)

None of the fuctions is working on my T40, kernel 2.6.14-mm2.

--lammic, 2005.12.05

Works for me on a T41 running 2.6.12-10-686 (Ubuntu 5.10).

--berndtnm, 2005.12.06

Including stop_charge_thresh? That one seems to be missing on the T42p.

--Thinker 00:46, 7 Dec 2005 (CET)

tp_smapi works just fine on an R52 with Ubuntu Breezy stock kernel.

--Micampe 12:52, 7 Dec 2005 (CET)

To set the thresholds for starting and stopping battery charging (in percent of current capacity):

current really? That'd be weird, I'd expect it to be percent of total capacity.

--Micampe 14:39, 7 Dec 2005 (CET)

"Current full charge capacity", as opposed to "current remaining capacity" or "designed full charge capacity"...

--Thinker 15:05, 7 Dec 2005 (CET)

Battery features don't work with my T41p. I can't check this with windows. Can anybody try these features?

-- Nils, 7 Dec 2005

Nils, does cdrom_speed work for you on the T41p? Could you provide the details requested in the README (dmesg etc.)?

--Thinker 21:57, 7 Dec 2005 (CET)

CDRom Speed seems to work. (I see no warnings, but I have to do a speed test.) Now, I've send all outputs to the email-address in the readme.

Changing the CD speed when the CD is being accessed will hang your computer

I don't have this problem on my T40p. CDROM is mounted and file on CD is opened. Change speed do not hang my system.

-- Stefan Schmidt

An open file looks fine if you're not reading/writing at that point. But my T43 does hangs on this:

# dd if=/dev/scd0 of=/dev/null &
# echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/smapi/cdrom_speed

--Thinker 16:41, 7 Dec 2005 (CET)

OK, sorry. I was to fast. My system hangs on this commands, too. :(

-- Stefan Schmidt

Works well. Great.

T42 2373-8zh. Working :cdrom_speed and start_charge_thresh. Untest : inhibit_charge_minutes.

-- Haifeng Chen

cdrom_speed works on my T40.

"thinkpad" module kernel compatibility

Ajunge, how do you compile the "thinkpad" module compile on kernel >=2.6.9? The latest thinkpad version (5.8) still uses "get_cpu_ptr" and "set_cpu_ptr", which were removed in 2.6.9.
