So what configuration options do you mean? When I debugged a failing
2.6.12, my debug statements were definitely being executed
at the point where it was supposed to stop.
I did briefly look at the configuration, but didnt see anything.
These are standard debian pre-packaged images as well.
The ACPI config from zless /proc/config.gz | grep ACPI is
# ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) Support
# CONFIG_ACPI_SLEEP_PROC_SLEEP is not set
# CONFIG_ACPI_DEBUG is not set
# CONFIG_X86_ACPI_CPUFREQ_PROC_INTF is not set
It all looks pretty set to me.
Yeah, it really looks good. Any differences between the 2.6.8 config?
I also recall encountering a motherboard that wouldn't shut down with
ACPI and needed APM, didn't it go away?
