Bug#282905: kernel-image-2.6.8-2-686: Same problem on Acer TM 801 with 2.6.8-13
Followup-For: Bug #282905
I seem to encounter the same problem on my Acer TravelMate 801LCi
Booting kernel 2.6.8-2-686 stops with line:
"ACPI: IRQ9 SCI: Edge set to Level Trigger."
No key pressing has any effect. I have to switch the laptop off by
holding the powerbutton.
This stop seems to be 100% reproducible for me (~10 tests) - with one exception:
I can boot 2.6.8-1-686 with no problems. When doing a reboot from here, I can
start 2.6.8-2 exactly once. But when trying to reboot once more, 2.6.8-2 will
again stop on the line mentioned above.
Bootparam 'nolapic' does reliably work around the stop.
I didn't encounter this problem on any of various 2.6 kernels between
2.6.0-test9 and 2.6.8-1.
I'm attaching dmesg output from a successfully booted 2.6.8-2 (with the
reboot from 2.6.8-1 trick) and lspci.
Feel free to ask me if you need any additional information.
