Description of problem:
After installing Severnity, I was unable to boot, computer resets right after
ACPI: Subsystem revision 20030619
PCI: PCI BIOS revision 2.10 entry at 0xfb3d0, last bus=1
PCI: Using configuration type 1
Before ACPI system description tables appears on screen. I tried to play with
BIOS settings and when I disable ACPI support in BIOS, the linux boots up
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot computer
Actual Results: Reset before ACPI system description tables
Expected Results: Computer should boot with ACPI enabled in BIOS.
I have Soltek SL-75MAV with KT133 chipset.

Can you a) boot with 'acpi=off', and b) post the output of /usr/sbin/dmidecode?

Output from dmidecode command
Yes, when acpi=off option is used as boot parameter, the system boots up even
with ACPI enabled in BIOS. Hope this helps.
can you boot with 'linux pci=noacpi' (and no other parameters)?
After that boot, can you get the output from 'dmesg -s40000', cat /proc/interrupts, lspci
-vv, and /sbin/acpidmp ?

Output from dmesg -s40000
No, I can not boot even with pci=noacpi. The result is the same as booting

Outputs from cat /proc/interrupts, lspci -vv, and /usr/sbin/acpidmp
system has no IO-APIC, and doesn't get far enough that pci=noacpi is even
noticed. Maybe it resets when the ACPI interpreter is 1st enabled, or when
digesting the PIC links...

Couldn't get the DSDT table header
Error registering Asus Laptop ACPI Extras Driver
-0420: *** Error: Could not allocate an object descriptor
This is strange, wouldn't expect to see this, especially for acpi=off
Any chance you can capture the console output via serial line for the failure
case? We might learn someting by enabling CONFIG_ACPI_DEBUG

ACPI VT86/Award PCI interrupt patch.
This patch has fixed the ACPI interrupt problem for similar systems.
Please try applying it to a copy of your Severn BETA1 kernel to
see if works for you too:

Yes, after applying this patch, the omputer boots normally. Thanks and I suppose
we should close this bug. BTW Redhat should incorporate this patch to the next
Rawhide or beta kernels.
With the latest kernel (2.4.22-20.1.2024.2.36.nptl) the problem seems to be
