Re: ACPI problems with kernel 2.6.x for Dell Inspiron 4100
Thanks for your help. A short followup. Only the alsa problems remain,
see below. Kernels tested are 2.6.8 and 2.6.9.

Yes, I did.

You were right, I did not have acpid installed. Works perfectly.

Yes it does. A warning is issued though, device ... does not match PIRQ
mask, try pci=usepirqmask. Also pci=noacpi works. Now IRQ 11 is
allocated to the sound card Intel 82801CA-ICH3, shared with other
devices. No effort is made to try to allocate IRQ7 (used by parport 0).
IRQ9 is allocated to ACPI.
