Looking at rc.sysint in initscripts 7.42, we're trying to load the
acpi drivers right after setting the hostname. This is on FC1, so I'm
not sure this is still the case in whatever version of initscripts is
Could you try setting acpi=off in your kernel command line at the grub
menu on boot?
Ok, acpi=off works. Changing to ACPI. Also looking to see if this is a
acpid is just the userspace daemon. The bug is in the kernel acpi
driver or, very likely, your BIOS and should be moved under 'kernel'.
If you're interested in debugging further, you might want to post to
the acpi-devel mailing list as well.
Also upgrade your BIOS to the latest version from the manufacturer and
see if boots with acpi enabled.
Changed to kernel. Will update BIOS and see post info shortly.
Now that I know it's a kernel issue I see that this is a dupe.
