Default Bug#333831: Etch Installer (pre-release) triggers bug #333831 on specific hardware

Does this error still occur with more recent kernel versions?

If you're running Etch, could you try to reproduce this bug
with the 2.6.24 based kernel added in 4.0r4?
http://packages.qa.debian.org/l/linux-2.6.24.html

Cheers,
Moritz

linux-kernel-2.6.24-etchnhalf.1-686 (aka 2.6.24-6~etchnhalf.7)

Boots without the interrupt warnings regarding hda.

ACPI is clearly enabled, and reports various messages boot.

Attempting to play an audio CD worked for a few seconds, then the
machine restarted (showing BIOS screen).

Last message in kernel log was:

ACPI: EC: non-query interrupt received, switching to interrupt mode

This occurred after using "CTRL-ALT-F1" to switch to console mode, and
could be seen on console a second or two before the restart. I retried a
cold reboot and just left it playing an audio CD in the GNOME desktop,
and it jumped to the BIOS splash screen again after a few seconds.

So whilst this kernel upgrade avoids the delays/hangs whilst booting it
doesn't resolve all the ACPI issues mentioned in this bug report.

The kernel mailing list makes reference to relevant improvements in
2.6.28. I'll build a 2.6.28 kernel and try that.

Thanks,

Simon

Thanks, if the problem persists in the 2.6.28 kernel, please file
a bug report at bugzilla.kernel.org and send the bug number to this
bug report.

Have you been able to reproduce the problem?
