I've been lurking on the list here for the last month while I've been setting
up a Debian Linux system on a Thinkpad 755CD. It's been a poignant
and, oftentimes, frustrating experience but also exhilirating to be moving
off the reliance of MS and Win*.
Anyhow, I'm just about finished the install and have a couple questions:
1) when I try to suspend the laptop by closing the case or using
'apm -s', nothing happens. Using the command, I get an error message
'Cannot open APM device: Permission denied'
However, I am able to start apm and have it notice AC off-line/on-line
events. Could someone explain the meaning of this error?
to access some of the resources.
2) I am trying to understand the SystemV boot/shutdown sequencesCheck the following link:
but coming from the DOS/Win* world am having some difficulties. Could
someone give me a good technical reference article or FAQ about how
this all works?
