Description of problem:
If I turn on acpi on grub, the system boots, the login screen appears
and when I try to login the machine freezes up.
If I turn acpi=off on grub the computer works like a charm.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. turn on acpi on grub
3. login screen appears
4. write my username + ENTER
5. write my password + ENTER
Actual Results: System freezes up
Expected Results: Gnome initializing screen should be visible and
With this kernel arguments the system don't freezes up:
rhgb acpi=on pci=noacpi
The magic is mix acpid=on with pci=noacpi
can you attach the dmesg and /proc/interrupts from the
success and failure cases? note that booting single
users should be sufficient to get this info.
Also, any change with updated kernel?
does this still happen with rhgb disabled?
try boot with nolapic, if it work like a charme is a duplicated bug
