Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 121760
(ACPI) acpi=off fixes, acpi boot crash on asus s1300n centrino
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:05:26 EST
I run Fedora Core test 3 with the redhat kernel 2.6.5-1.332 on an Asus
S1300N contrino notebook and booting
without acpi=off will crash the kernel. I'll attach a photo of the
crash. That happens every time.
I need acpi because otherwise every other pci device gets assigned irq 5
and sound doesn't work.

Photo of kernel crash
I have the same problem on an ASUS M3000N laptop.
I have almost completely similar output on an ASUS M3000N laptop with
248MB RAM and a Pentium M 1700MHz CPU.
This occurs everytime I have attempted to install using a cd burned
from the file FC2-test3-i386-disc1.iso and occurs after the initial
screen after pressing enter 'to install or upgrade' or
entering 'linux test'
Looking at the image, the only obvious difference is the line that
begins "Code:". This is what I get:
Code: 89 68 10 89 f8 e8 85 e1 00 00 b8 37 00 00 00 e8 96 e3 00
I have successfully installed FC2 test1 on this same machine.
Re: Summary change (addition of "(ACPI) acpi=off fixes":
I'd rather say workaround instead of fix because sound and battery
status display don't work without ACPI.
2.6.5-1.349 doesn't fix this.
Asus M3425 here same problem. From bug 122577, the kernel panic also
happens with FC2 test2 upgraded to rawhide. The first kernel with the
problem is kernel-2.6.5-1.326, kernel-2.6.5-1.322 boots fine.

My ASUS 5200N(S5N) laptop has the same problem. It has the latest bios
update(0210 release) as of 9th May 2004.
Also when I turn of acpi as a work-around I lose access to the PCMCIA
slot, so thus the external wireless card I use, no longer works as well.
Also my ASUS M2400N+ with centrino 1.6 GHz and 512 MB enters kernel
panic when booting without acpi=off.
There is no point, of course, to go to kernel 2.6 without acpi.
I have the same problem with my Asus M2400N (BIOS ver. 208), but it
works with a 2.6.5 vanilla kernel form kernel.org.

we're going to need to see the ACPI DSDT's of these laptops to get any
further on this. It looks like the cpufreq parser is getting confused
by whatever is in the ACPI tables.
As root do..
cat /proc/acpi/dsdt > dsdt
and attach that to the bug please.

Happens still with FC2 final on ASUS S5200N with the 210 bios update

patch for fixing this oops, against 2.6
might a dumb question, but how do i apply this patch? do i have to
install the kernelsources and rebuild the kernel?
yes, you need to install the kernel source
patch -Np1 < luming.patch
and build the kernel the normal way.
probably a good idea to use the kernel config file that comes with the release.
I just ran that patch against Fedora Linux Kernel 2.6.6-1.368 and did
a build using the i686 config file on my S5200N and the kernel panic
is gone :-)
i've tested this patch with 2.6.5-1.358 and it works fine for me too
on my asus m2400n.
Tested patch with 2.6.5-1.358 and it fixes the problem on a Gateway GL450X
What can i do in order to install fc2 in a clean Asus s5200N?
I can't boot from FC2 final! Kernel Panic.
Works for me, sound and battery status work now.
Pedro: boot from the first CD and enter linux acpi=off at the boot prompt.
What's still NEEDINFO?
I didn't mean to change the status to ASSIGNED; that's bugzilla's
The patch fixes the problem for me as well on a Gateway 450X.

Recent kernels (as 2.6.6-1.422) work fine... did the patch went in?
did an alternate fix went in? If so should the above patch go in as well?
I have a 4 year ELSA Motherboard type EP-58 MVP3C-M with a VIA
chipset.The processor is a K-6 450 MHz.
ALthough ACPI is available, it apparently doesn't comply with the
Fedora kernel, shipped with version 2.0 (2.6.5-1.358).
As suggested, I started with the command acpi=off and no error
occurred. However, the PCI ethernet card (3COM 3C905) was not seen
just as the ISA sound board (Soundblaster AW32).
I would have attached the output of the lspci -vvx command but the
system off course is not on the network and it's a lot of typing (!).
By the way the standard setup doesn't come with the sources. I assume
they must be installed from disk 4?
Hope somebody can help me out.
Asus W1942NWP, BIOS 0202, 04/20/04, FC2 Release - same problem
