#4568 closed bug (duplicate)

Old ACPI Bios results in failed driver loading

Reported by: slaine Owned by: axeld
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: System/Kernel Version: R1/alpha1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: x86


Installed the R1A1 image on a partition on my Sony Vaio Z600NEK (from circa 2000). It's a Pentium III 650MHz with 256MB RAM and a 40Gb 2.5@ IDE drive. The CD-ROM is PCMCIA drive. Ethernet is an Intel Ethernet Pro 100. Video is a NeoMagic 256+ XL.

I had the "Plug'n'Play" option enabled in the Bios as the box had been running XP recently. When looking in /var/log/syslog I could see both the ipro100 driver loading, detecting the hardware but then failing to initialize it properly. Something similar seemed to be happening to the USB driver.

By disabling the "Plug'N'Play" option in the BIOS, everything seemed to work again.

Heres some output from the /var/log/syslog for the ipro100 driver when it failed to init properly.

It's a known issue, which is even detailed in the release notes. Searching for the related ticket to close this as duplicate.

Apologies. It was suggested on the IRC channel to log this as a bug.

comment:3 by korli, 14 years ago

No problem. Could you please upload your syslog with Plug'N'Play enabled to confirm the diagnostic? The bug is #5.

No update, assuming diagnosis is correct.

(In #5) All but one of the blocking tickets have been closed out, and that one just needs confirmation as to whether it's been fixed or not. So I say let's close this one out as being fixed, seeing as the reported symptoms have gone away.
