Default Linux on a Laptop : Software

Anyone out there aware of a utility to show battery life for linux? I couldn't find anything on linux-laptop.net. It's a Presario 1200XL300 using RedHat 8.

Thanks for the help.

acpi enabled kernel? or apm? anyway, gkrellm
is really neat look at freshmeat.net and search
for apm or acpi, there are many monitor apps for
different window-managers and desktop environments.

cheers

I thought RH8 came with one built-in? at least in KDE I saw it...go thru the KDE Control Panel...

I've certainly got that panel with my RH8 install, and it's not even on a laptop, lol...If I was in Linux right now I'd tell you where it is, but I'm not...pretty sure it's in the Preferences menu in KDE.

Hehe..thanks fella's!!! I kinda feel like those disenfranchised PC users in the OS-X commercials.

Thanks again!

It's definitely not the friendliest piece of software for first-time users, that's for darn sure.
