Description Johannes Köster 2007-02-21 16:53:17 EST
Description of problem:
On most newer HP notebooks, Bios gets into a "Bad State" when shutting down or 
rebooting Linux without removing psmouse module beforehand (which is 
apparently impossible in Fedora Core). In the Kernel-Bugzilla there are 
patches for this issue which are in the upstream of 2.6.21 
(http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5534#c204). I suggest adding them 
to the 2.6.19 Fedora-kernel-packages as novell did the same for suse and they 
didn't experienced problems.

How reproducible:
Shutdown or reboot

Bad State of the Bios causes several errors depending on which hp notebook one 
acpi-events and battery-status are not getting updated anymore
fans are not working properly
cpufrequency is not set properly
Comment 1 Chuck Ebbert 2007-02-27 11:17:25 EST
Apparently will be fixed in
Comment 2 Chuck Ebbert 2007-03-06 09:45:50 EST
Should be fixed in kernel-2.6.19-1.2911.6.5
Comment 3 Johannes Köster 2007-03-14 13:29:36 EDT
I can confirm it working with 2.6.19-2911.6.5. Bios not in Bad state anymore 
on HP Compaq nx6325.
However there are still problems updating Battery and AC status. 
Comment 4 Chuck Ebbert 2007-03-14 17:00:53 EDT
Please test 2.6.20-1.2925.fc6
Comment 5 Johannes Köster 2007-03-15 04:33:50 EDT
