What happens if you boot with 'acpi=off'?

Comment 2 Brett Lovgren 2003-08-18 15:07:10 UTC
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 2004-11-20 01:57:27 UTC
still a problem with current release ?

Comment 4 Brett Lovgren 2004-11-25 04:25:27 UTC
No.  Just loaded FC3 on the same Compaq Evo N610c and it works great.
