VIA MVP3 based board soft poweroff

Post by erdbea » Tue, 21 Dec 1999 04:00:00



Hi,

my DFI MainBoard model K6BV3+ (Chipset VIA Apollo MVP3 82c5866/82c598)
will under Linux (2.2.13) NOT software power-off (apm/power -
kernelfeature).
Instead, "halt -p" causes a kernel panic.

What is the cause...and IS THERE a workaround ??

Thank you so much....

and Good bless u

The cause may be a buggy BIOS giving an incorrect APM entry point.  If
that is the case, Stephen Rothwell wrote a workaround that is in kernel
patch 2.3.34 (it has a config option with it).  If you don't want to
actually upgrade to 2.3.34, you might look in the 2.3.34 patch for the
fix and apply a similar one to your own source tree.

Hi,

:(

-> it didnt work !
Set the Options in K 2.3.34 .....Box crashes no more....but
it reboots...despite having  substitutet "halt" against "halt -p" in rc.0
(sysvinit-2.76)
Ok.....time to check this out....by oneself.

BTW
I have written a programm in Visual C++ under Win 95,
which uses the ExitWindowsEx function.

When supplying a flag called "EXW_POWEROFF" which is supposed to power the
box off at least the the box doesnt,
but... when supplying "EXW_SHUTDOWN" it does...strange.

Maybe there is an adaequance for the linux topic.

Thanks

1. Nvidia drivers, VIA MVP3 board and AGP

Has anyone else had problems enabling AGP support on a Super 7 MVP3 based
motherboard with the NVidia drivers.

I tried enabling  NVidia's AGP support but that fails. Then I tries using
AGPGart, which loads and X starts up but the keyboard gets locked out and
the X session freezes.

Currently running RedHat 7.1 and a 2.4.7 Kernel
