Description Ian Pilcher 2003-08-14 01:28:50 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030704

Description of problem:
The ACPI power-off function does not power down my Abit VP6-based system.  (It
does seem to shut down some of the hardware, however, because the system
requires a power cycle to reboot.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Boot with kernel-smp-2.4.21-20.1.2024.2.1.nptl
2.  shutdown -h now

Actual Results:  System does not power down; power cycle required to reboot.

Expected Results:  System should power down.

There is a patch for power off issue on some platforms, would you have it a try.
please reference http://bugme.osdl.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1141 to get it.
Comment 2 Ian Pilcher 2003-08-29 13:09:06 EDT
I have rebuilt the Severn kernel RPM with the suggested patch.  It does not
completely solve the problem, although it may have made it less frequent.  (The
system has successfully powered off 2 of the 3 times I have tried with the
patched kernel.)

Does poweroff still fail on this Abit  with a recent kernel?
Comment 4 Ian Pilcher 2004-06-03 17:13:42 EDT
I have given up on getting ACPI (and the I/O APIC) to work on this
board with a recent kernel.  Feel free to close this.
