I have 5.0 running on an old Sony VAIO (PGC-505Z
maybe?), everything works fine except the ACPI (which
seems to operate on something of a
throw-a-six-to-start basis). Oh, and sjog (which I
think might be related to the ACPI issue)
Anybody know anything about the intersection of 5.0,
Sony laptops and APM/ACPI?
