http://carnot.pathology.ubc.ca/dalton.dmesg
and
http://carnot.pathology.ubc.ca/dalton.syslog
are accessable now.

For me these lines in dmesg are interesting.

[ 95.240029] I will go on reclaiming the buffers anyway.

In the BIOS Setup I have
Advanced Setup
Plug and Play Control
Plug and Play Operating System [Yes]

Power Management
ACPI BIOS IRQ [IRQ 9]
ACPI Standby Mode [S3]
.

Changeing to "Plug and Play Operating System [No]" doesn't help.

Can anyone comment on
PnPBIOS: Disabled by ACPI PNP
or
mtrr: base ... not aligned
?

Thanks, ... Peter E.

They are interesting to me too, especially the drm and mtrr messages.
This may be a kernel bug.

That's for operating systems that don't have drivers to initialize
plug and play devices, such as DOS.

PnPBIOS: Disabled by ACPI PNP

is a normal message when ACPI is active. The mtrr message I've
never seen before. Or at least I haven't noticed it before.

There is a newer kernel available in squeeze now, 2.6.32-5.
Maybe it will fix the problem.

# aptitude update
# aptitude full-upgrade

This will also be a good test of your kernel installation environment
changes. If everything was customized correctly, the symlinks should
be automatically updated and lilo should be automatically run. Since
only the two most recently installed kernels will normally be bootable,
you will normally want to manually purge any older kernels that are
still installed to save disk space *after* the upgrade. For example:

aptitude purge linux-image-2.6.32-trunk-686

Oops! I take that back. That kernel is still in Sid.

There are a couple of other things you can try. One is to
intentionally disable ACPI. That may cause other problems, but
you might want to try it at least for diagnostic purposes. To
do that, specify

append="acpi=off"

in your /etc/lilo.conf file. Put it following the image line
for your default kernel. That way, if it causes major problems,
you can boot your old kernel and ACPI will be on. After editing
the file, run lilo, then shutdown and reboot. You will need to
be root to do this.

Another thing you can try is to use the vesa driver instead
of the intel driver. The vesa driver is slow, but a slow driver
is better than a driver that doesn't work. Edit your /etc/X11/xorg.conf
file and change intel to vesa on the driver line. Then shutdown
and reboot. If the vesa driver works then its a likely that the
problem is in the intel driver.
