Bug#479094: linux-2.6: Toshiba Satellite 1800 freezes on restart (that is when Restarting System now appears)
Version: 2.6.18 through 2.6.24 (latest versions in etch and lenny as of now)
On a Toshiba Satellite 1800 laptop it is impossible to reboot the
system. When the system says "Restarting system now" (e.g. when the
software reset is being issued, after all the shutdown procedure has
completed), the system hangs and must be powered off with the power
button before it can be restarted (by turning it on).
I have tried noapic nolapic apci=off (all of them), to no avail.
This is an etch system, but I have tried the 2.6.24 kernel as well. I
have the toshiba_acpi module installed but it doesn't help (I think it's
for modify BIOS parameters not normal acpi stuff anyway) (with acpi=off
not present of course).
I only have this laptop until Monday so the debugging I can do is
limited, but if I can do anything before then, I will.
