ACPI and Dell 8100

ACPI and Dell 8100

Post by Kristian Koehntop » Thu, 08 May 2003 09:30:20



Dell Inspiron 8100, BIOS A14. Suse Linux 8.2, Kernel 2.4.20 with
Suse Patches - ACPI does no longer work properly. Suse Linux 8.1
with Kernel 2.4.19 with Suse Patches worked properly.
NVidia Drivers loaded at later point in time.

At boot, I get the following messages when inserting the acpi modules:

lp0: using parport0 (polling).
