Re: [Xen-users] ACPI in unstable

I have been able to test this on two machines (an athlon 64 and a Pentium M) 
with the same results in 2.6.16 in xen.  I can't test in a
vanilla kernel at this time.  The odd part is that I can disable all of the 
ACPI triggers (button, fan, temp, etc)  just as long as the
base ACPI support is compiled in, networking works.

The place where you made your stand never mattered,
only that you were there... and still on your feet

Hi Jason,

I have seen this behaviour as well;  I though it had to do with
disabling the APIC, rather than APCI. To boot without apci, you can just
specify noapci on the kernel command line.

I'll verify locally a little later on with a noacpi boot.

Hey guys, may have another one but Im not sure if this is a xen thing or a 
linux thing.   If I
disable ACPI in my Dom0 kernel, none of my NICs work. They all show up, but if 
you try to send or
receive traffic you get a NETDEV WATCHDOG timeout error. I have found a bug on 
the Debian lists
listing something similar in regards to nics stopping after a suspend.  Could 
someone else try to
compile a custom Dom0 kernel and only remove ACPI support and see if you have 
the same trouble?
For reference, my NICS are eepro100's and via Rhine II's.   xm info says
