Description Jason 2003-09-27 11:18:37 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
When I installed fedora test2 I noticed that acpi was disabled because my bios 
is older than 1999.  The message said to use acpi=force and it might work.  
Guess what it works great.  I have a tyan tiger 100 (S1832) motherboard in case 
there is some sort database which tracks this information.


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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  install fedora test 2
2.  acpi is disabled by default
3.  due to my bios being older than 1999

Actual Results:  the pc does not turn off

Expected Results:  acpi should be enabled for this motherboard

We've got not no current plans to change the cutoff date, 
or to create a list of exceptions to it, but if you'd like to put
