Description of problem:
The ACPI panic seems to have been fixed enough that I'm no longer
getting the "nobody cared" message for IRQ 11.
In fact, my sound card will now work (see bug 139449).
Now, however, it still does not bring up the ethernet card. It tries to
assign it to IRQ 0.
To get everything to work with no boot error messages, I have to use
the following kernel parameters:
It will work without pci=usepirqmask, but I get some messages when it
tries to assign a couple of IRQs.. and then tells me to use that
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install kernel-2.6.10-1.737_FC3.i686.rpm
2. boot with no special kernel parameters
Toshiba 2775XDVD laptop, PIII-650
Created attachment 109617 [details]
Output from lspci command
Created attachment 109618 [details]
Output of dmesg after booting with no kernel parameters
Created attachment 109619 [details]
dmesg output after boot with acpi=off pci=usepirqmask
does pci=routeirq make it work too ?
Created attachment 109630 [details]
dmesg output with pci=routeirq
Unfortunately, even with pci=routeirq, I get the same results as with no
kernel parameters (or very similar ones).
I'm not sure it's related.
I'll file a seperate bug report if you want me to. :)
Anyway, I've also noticed it couldn't find Synaptics driver either on
Evo N610c Notebook after installed kernel 2.6.10-1.737_FC3.
Please see following thread for more information:
Just want to follow up on syanptics issue.
Regardless "synaptics reset failed" messages, the touchpad on the
notebook seems to work fine. :)
Here's the error message I get when I boot without acpi=off when the
system tries to bring up eth0:
SIOCSIFFLAGS: Device or resource busy
Failed to bring up eth0.
Don't know if that will provide any clues or not.
Kernel 2.6.10-1.741_FC3 has the same issues.
Apparently, the Toshiba 2775XDVD laptop has ACPI v1.0b.
Found the spec info for it here:
The last BIOS upgrade from Toshiba was dated 10/3/2002, is
titled: ACPI Flash BIOS version 1.60 for Satellite 2755/2775
An update has been released for Fedora Core 3 (kernel-2.6.12-1.1372_FC3) which
may contain a fix for your problem. Please update to this new kernel, and
report whether or not it fixes your problem.
If you have updated to Fedora Core 4 since this bug was opened, and the problem
still occurs with the latest updates for that release, please change the version
field of this bug to 'fc4'.
Well, I'm on FC4 now with kernel 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4. It all seems to work now.
Thanks, everyone! :)
