Description of problem:
The Sony SRX series (and other laptops) require ACPI, and specifically PCI IRQ
assignment support in ACPI to assign an IRQ to cardbus devices.

Please include the most recent ACPI patches to support this functionality and
consider offering a toggle in anaconda to append acpi=off or apm=off to the
kernel as indicated by the user.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Stock kernel does not support ACPI, and included patches do not support ACPI
PCI IRQ assignment.

Fedora Core 2-test1 has ACPI enabled by default --
does it work okay for you?
Comment 2 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:41:33 EDT
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
