Comment 2 Gerard 2007-04-30 03:56:00 EDT
I updated the RHEL 4 from update 2 to update 4 (including kernel). By the reboot
the problem begins. In the messages file say disable acpi (acpi=off). The
problem is gone.

What does acpi?
Comment 3 Phil Knirsch 2007-05-16 11:02:09 EDT
ACPI stands for Advanced Configuration and Power Interface and basically handles
the how the machine is configured (hardware wise) and used mainly for power
management while it is running.

Some systems have broken or bogous ACPI implementations and so might requires
the acpi=off flag during bootup to work properly.

This is a kernel bug though, so i'm reassigning it to kernel component.


Read ya, Phil
Comment 4 Prarit Bhargava 2007-06-15 10:57:15 EDT
Gerard, could you boot with "noacpi" and let me know if your system boots?


Comment 5 Gerard 2007-06-21 08:00:52 EDT

I shall try, is "noacpi" not the same as "acpi=off"?


Comment 6 Prarit Bhargava 2007-06-21 10:10:28 EDT
Hi Gerard, whoops -- I didn't read comment #2 carefully enough.  Thanks.

Comment 7 Prarit Bhargava 2007-06-25 07:41:09 EDT
Hi Gerard,

Could you send me details on the system you're using?  Who the vendor is, output
from /proc/cpuinfo, etc.?


Comment 8 Gerard 2007-07-04 16:49:31 EDT

The vendor is a HP DX2000. I did a sysreport and upload this file.
