Created attachment 153773 [details] log file with the errors
Comment 2 Gerard 2007-04-30 07:56:00 UTC
I updated the RHEL 4 from update 2 to update 4 (including kernel). By the reboot the problem begins. In the messages file say disable acpi (acpi=off). The problem is gone. What does acpi?
Comment 3 Phil Knirsch 2007-05-16 15:02:09 UTC
ACPI stands for Advanced Configuration and Power Interface and basically handles the how the machine is configured (hardware wise) and used mainly for power management while it is running. Some systems have broken or bogous ACPI implementations and so might requires the acpi=off flag during bootup to work properly. This is a kernel bug though, so i'm reassigning it to kernel component. Thanks, Read ya, Phil
Comment 4 Prarit Bhargava 2007-06-15 14:57:15 UTC
Gerard, could you boot with "noacpi" and let me know if your system boots? Thanks, P.
Comment 5 Gerard 2007-06-21 12:00:52 UTC
Hi, I shall try, is "noacpi" not the same as "acpi=off"? Regards, Gerard
Comment 6 Prarit Bhargava 2007-06-21 14:10:28 UTC
Hi Gerard, whoops -- I didn't read comment #2 carefully enough. Thanks. P.
Comment 7 Prarit Bhargava 2007-06-25 11:41:09 UTC
Hi Gerard, Could you send me details on the system you're using? Who the vendor is, output from /proc/cpuinfo, etc.? Thanks, P.
Comment 8 Gerard 2007-07-04 20:49:31 UTC
Hi, The vendor is a HP DX2000. I did a sysreport and upload this file. Regards, Gerard
