Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 169226
ACPI battery reading + hal stopped working with 2.6.12-1.1447_FC4
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:22:11 EST
Description of problem:
I can no longer read battery status in /proc/acpi/battery/BAT0/*, and the deamon
HAL is no longer starting since kernel 2.6.12-1.1447. (kernel 2.6.12-1.1456
isn't working either, but kernel 2.6.12-1.1398_FC4 is fine.)
The computer is an ASUS laptop S5200N, with an Intel chipset (see attached lspci).
During boot time, the computer freezes during about half a minute at three
places: after printing (note the ok, the freeze occurs between this message and
Configuration du nom d'hÃ´te [ok]
and after printing
DÃ©marrage du dÃ©mon HAL
and during the launch of kde, when it prints
Initialisation des pÃ©riphÃ©riques
(I prefer not backtranslating the messages to english; the meaning shoud be
clear. "DÃ©marrage" is "start")
The processes hald and haldaddon-acpi, which I usually have, are not present.
The battery is not readable; trying to read /proc/acpi/battery/BAT0/info
or /proc/acpi/battery/BAT0/state takes tens of seconds and print wrong
information (all the numbers are wrong). In dmesg appears each time I try to
read these files a couple of times the following line
ACPI-0145: *** Error: Invalid owner_id: 00
I am attaching the output of lspci -v and of dmesg
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Created attachment 119236 [details]
Output of lspci -v
Created attachment 119237 [details]
Output of dmesg
Please try the latest test kernel from here and report back.
Same problem on Asus M5N with 2.6.12-1.1447_FC4 and 2.6.12-1.1456_FC4. Never was
an issue with a kernel from rawhide, and is fixed with 2.6.13-1.1524_FC4.
It works again for me with kernel kernel-2.6.13-1.1525_FC4.i686.rpm.
What was the problem ? I don't see any changelogs around

Mass update to all FC4 bugs:
An update has been released (2.6.13-1.1526_FC4) which rebases to a new upstream
kernel (126.96.36.199). As there were ~3500 changes upstream between this and the
previous kernel, it's possible your bug has been fixed already.
Please retest with this update, and update this bug if necessary.
The problem I reported is fixed in kernel 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4.
(I don't seem to have any sound anymore, but I'll fill another bug or wait for
someone to do so)
