strange poweroff/reboot behaviour
Just upgraded an Acer Aspire 5250 laptop to
NetBSD marion-dufresne.kerguelen.org 6.99.28 NetBSD 6.99.28
(MARION-DUFRESNE) #12: Tue Dec 24 13:51:40 GMT 2013
and it's been running more or less OK, but for one strange thing:
whenever I try to shut it down, power it off or reboot it, it shuts off
completely and starts beeping (three long, two short). Same
behaviour, at lower beep volume, when I turn it on again - but
removing the AC adapter then restores normality.
This is new behaviour, NetBSD 6 did not have the problem.
I've asked Acer what these BIOS beeps actually mean, the Internet
doesn't seem to know. But while I wait for their response, I thought I'd
ask here: does anyone know what change between 6 and -CURRENT
might have caused this problem, and how it might be solved? Of
course, I'd be happy to provide more data and/or do things to help
debug the problem, just ask.
"Then I'll tell the truth. We're allowed to do that in emergencies."
