Currently, it works only on Linux with ACPI with 2.6 kernels since it reads files in /proc and relies on that format. It runs also on FreeBSD thanks to patches by Chris Vetter.
I've written code in SystemConfig in the Étoilé repository for getting power status on FreeBSD and OpenBSD as well. If this is of any use to you, feel free to steal it - it's BSDL.

Didn't Andreas Schick write an Etoile menulet that used DBus to determine the battery status? It used to be available at www.andreasheppel.de/software.html

Which reminds me, how is the DBus integration coming along?
The code to date is in the Étoilé code review system:
Feel free to add comments. I am currently about half way through reviewing it.

Great reviewing facility you have there and nice code too. I was hoping for some additional ideas that would go beyond my original outline, but at least it fills most of the open spaces I left there. Which alone was quite some work. Do you have examples of code that could be handled with that implementation? Is it for example sufficient for the DBus bits already used in Etoile?

The GNUstep repository has been added to the system, so feel free to use it for reviewing GNUstep patches too. So far most of the work has been on getting the basic DBUS implementation working and tested. Closer DO integration and some example uses are the objectives for the second phase.
