Comment 1 Justin M. Forbes 2003-11-04 04:45:03 UTC
Oops, kept the acpi=off in my grub.conf... leaving that out fixes the

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2003-11-20 19:28:37 UTC
It still shouldn't oops, this needs fixing.

Comment 3 Jim Paradis 2003-12-09 17:45:25 UTC
Can you tell me what kind of hardware you booted this on?

Comment 4 Justin M. Forbes 2003-12-09 19:00:43 UTC
This was a Gigabyte K8NPro Motherboard.  With ACPI=off, this is not an
issue with the newer kernels (the 2122 I put out, and the 2129 FC1
errata)  ACPI is still broken, and after talking with AMD and with
Michael Johnson, I will be submitting a patch to add NF3 to the ACPI
blacklist.  Supposedly nVidia's reference BIOS for NF3 was broken.

Comment 5 Justin M. Forbes 2004-02-04 20:13:25 UTC
2163 and later have the disable IO_APIC work around in place for NF3,
and VIA.  acpi=off is no longer required, and no oops on boot.
