Fedora 13 battery icon is wrong

I’ve been running Fedora 13 beta on my laptop for quite a while. But I haven’t been able to figure out what causes this scenario. It happens after a suspend/resume cycle. The battery popup clearly shows 7 hours + remaining, but the percentage and the icon are completely wrong.

Running acpi yields more accurate information:

[jesusr@speed3 ~]$ acpi -b
Battery 0: Discharging, 81%, 06:25:37 remaining

and acpitool shows the following:

[jesusr@speed3 ~]$ acpitool -B
  Battery #1     : present
    Remaining capacity : 7479 mAh, 81.01%, 07:09:00
    Design capacity    : 9324 mAh
    Last full capacity : 9232 mAh, 99.01% of design capacity
    Capacity loss      : 0.9867%
    Present rate       : 1046 mA
    Charging state     : discharging
    Battery type       : rechargeable 
    Model number       : 42T4799
    Serial number      :  6034

Could it be we have the decimal point in the wrong place? Seems like it should be 82% in the screenshot instead of 8.2%. Has this bug been fixed? If not, what package should I file the bug against? If you need a test user I’ll be happy to test it 🙂

git branch in shell prompt

I’ve used this prompt for quite some time but realized I never blogged about it 🙂

As a git user I tend to work in a few branches at a time. Unlike subversion where you typically have a separate directory for each branch, with git branches update the working directory. So it is easy to get lost when you have more than one branch. Sure you can do

git branch


git branch -r

but this can be invasive when you could easily glance at your shell prompt.

In bash (is there really any other shell?), I updated my prompt to show the current branch:

PS1="[\u@\h \W\$(git branch 2> /dev/null | grep -e '\* ' | sed 's/^..\(.*\)/{\1}/')]\$ "

This make the prompt look like this:
