Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:

This bug got back ported to Fedora 8 in a recent kernel update to Running an HP Pavilion m8430f Intel quad-core. Had absolutely
no errors until this update.

Comment 4 Slobodan Sredojevic 2008-08-24 20:17:40 UTC
This is happening to me, too (with all kernels in F9  - to the latest During the kernel loading I see:
ACPI: Error attaching device data
ACPI: Error attaching device data
ACPI: Error attaching device data
ACPI: Error attaching device data
before message "Kernel Alive". I'll attach my dmesg.

Is it related with reading temperature sensor, as in F9 my /proc/acpi/thermal_zone directory is empty (there used to be an "temperature" file). That is probably the reason I can't read temperature via gnome-sensors-applet too but I don't know is it related to those ACPI errors reported.

Comment 6 Slobodan Sredojevic 2008-09-13 23:17:52 UTC
This is fixed upstream and included in 2.6.26-rc1 kernel.

Latest Fedora 9 /stable kernel update delivered made "ACPI: Error attaching device data" messages dissappear. Can other reporters confirm the same?

Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2009-06-10 00:12:01 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 15:44:37 UTC
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
