Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 247596
ACPICA: allow Load(OEMx) tables
Last modified: 2013-08-05 21:43:38 EDT
Description of problem:
HP and Hitachi machines have been implemented with SSDT's
that use the "OEMx" signatures. But upon Load, ACPICA is rejecting
these tables because they are not using the "SSDT" signature.
ACPI Error (tbinstal-0134): Table has invalid signature [OEMx], must be SSDT...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Just checked the back port patch is in kernel-2.6.18-37.el5.src.rpm.
In regards to comment #1, I do not see that code in the kernel source, nor do I
see the patch in the kernel.src.rpm.
Also, in the future, only the maintainers or managers should put bugzillas into
MODIFIED state. As we have to do the accounting for it.
Putting back into ASSIGNED state until we can verify what patch fixed this issue.
I just posted the patch.
