Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 250859
kernel panic with pci=noacpi (hp laptop)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:12 EST
Description of problem: Kernel panic when booting with option pci=noacpi. Note
I'm using the x86_64-kde rawhide live dvd. This might be x86_64 only?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): f8test1
How reproducible: Always?
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot with pci=noacpi
Actual results: kernel panic
Expected results: normal boot
This is HP dv9237eu laptop. I have to boot with the pci=noacpi or the system
will hang when X starts. See http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8186
That bug affects the whole dv9000z series?? The pci=noacpi option works with f7.

I see lot's of discussion on linux-kernel mailing list about this. I'm just
enduser, so I can't really test any patches.
I was planning to wait for f8test2, but maybe I now install test1 when it gets

Hmm, that's too bad, it would've been good to get a confirmation that it works
I guess we'll wait and see if it fixed Andy's NUMA issues and if it does we'll
push for inclusion, at which point it will make its way to you.
Riku, if you install test1 we can try the fixes in Fedora.
OK. I'm downloading test1 now, I can install it tomorrow.
Sorry, can't install. http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=249908
Atleast not now.
Chuck, I've installed test1 now.
Good news is that I don't have to use pci=noacpi anymore, everything works
without it. But the panic is still there with pci=noacpi.

Riku, thanks for testing.
Chuck, do you know if the ->sysdata fix included in -test1? Alternatively, where
can I download the kernel source to check?
Note that as of this writing Linus has not merged it into mainline yet, so it
was only included if you included it as an external patch.
Now merged into mainline 2.6.23-rc3
