I have a problem with my Toshiba laptop and the piixpcib-driver. The
laptop worked perfek on NetBSD 3.0.1.I upgraded to BETA 2 with a version
build at 2007-05-17, download out of the daily-server from 2007-05-27.
I installed NetBSD on a different system and put the harddrive into the
toshiba laptop (because cd-rom is broken).
While booting GENERIC_LAPTOP the system go suspend very early after some
lines. After pressing the power-button to activate the laptop the screen
turn on again and show only a blinking cursor. System is unusable now.
When booting a kernel without acpi -> the system go to suspend but could
continue after pressing the power button.
After some help by YazzY in #netbsd @ freenode. I figured out how to
disable some devices before boot.
I try to disable every device with power-managment connections.
If I disable piixpcib driver the system work perfekt again. I don't
understand why the piixpcib try to suspend the system on boot. According
to the kernel config this is only a speedstep-driver, but my toshiba has
only a pentium ii.
Of course I could disable entry in the config an rebuild the system
without this driver, but because the driver is enabled by default it
should be fixed.
