Description of problem:
I wasn't really expecting this to work ... but if I can provide any useful
information to help make ACPI more stable, I can.

ACPI: System description tables not found

Comment 1 Len Brown 2004-03-12 22:34:55 EST
any chance you can try this with a 2.6-era kernel,
say Fedora-Core-2-test1?

Comment 2 Len Brown 2004-03-24 17:13:38 EST
Is ACPI enabled or disabled in the BIOS?
(shouldn't panic in either case, but could be a clue)
If this still happens with a recent kernel, can you attach
the output from acpidmp, avaible in pmtools here:

otherwise, please close this bug.

Comment 3 Thornton Prime 2004-05-05 08:42:35 EDT
Works fine with FC2test3/2.6.5-1.327.
