What happens if you boot with 'acpi=off'?
Comment 2 Brett Lovgren 2003-08-18 11:07:10 EDT
Occurred on a Compaq Evo N610c.  I rebuilt the box using RedHat 9, so I don't
know what happens with acpi=off.
Comment 3 Dave Jones 2004-11-19 20:57:27 EST
still a problem with current release ?
Comment 4 Brett Lovgren 2004-11-24 23:25:27 EST
No.  Just loaded FC3 on the same Compaq Evo N610c and it works great.
