ACPI functionality loss for older i386 mainboards with -current acpi changes during 2007
Testing -current's acpi functionality on 2 older i386 mainboards
(still) shows severe problems:
- Both are not able to power down ('shutdown -p now'). Both freezes
the machines after synching the disks.
- On the P3B-F -current is no longer capable to simply reboot the
machine (after synching the disks a lot of error messages of its
scsi controller appear and the machine is unresponsive).
This simple/basic (acpi) functionality was working fine on both
machines running -current of/at the beginning of 2007 and was lost
during further -current changes in 2007 till now. Searching
mail-index.netbsd.org yields some other people having similar problems
with their (older?) mainboards, too.
As commented by Joerg Sonnenberger <joerg%britannica.bec.de@localhost> in
private mail the apci bios of the A7M266-D seems to be broken, but I
couldn't find a way to solve this (acpi-iasl, ACPI_DSDT_OVERRIDE
So, what will be -current's 'solution' for these mainboards?
No longer acpi supported? (Stick to netbsd-4? Didn't try this yet...)
Would be nice if this functionality could be 'reactivated' for older
mainboards / broken acpi bios' as it was working before.
Any help appreciated!
I can provide further info / testing of these 2 mentioned mainboards.
