I'm having problems booting with kernel 2.6.10. The kernel compiles okay, but when I try to boot, it stops after this line:
ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:00:08:0[A] -> GSI 11 (level, low) -> IRQ 11
Booting kernel 2.6.9, that line differs slightly:
ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:00:09.0[A] -> GSI 11 (level, low) -> IRQ 11
When I boot using acpi=off, it stops after these lines:
PCI: Found IRQ for device 0000:00:08.0
PCI: Sharing IRQ 11 with 0000:00:09.0
PCI: Sharing IRQ 11 with 0000:00:09.1
I have also tried compiling 2.6.10 without ACPI support, either with and without APM instead. This made no difference at all.
When booting stops, the computer only responds to its reset button, so it's hard to give more info on this, except by typing everything what's on the screen over using another computer. Not even CTRL+PgUP works.
When I boot using 2.6.9 (unpatched), everything is fine, including ACPI. IRQ is shared by uhci_hcd, ESS Maestro (the soundcard) and eth0, but not by ACPI. That one is at IRQ 9! Could it be that something's mixed up here? The BIOS config program (accessible at the beginning of booting) is very limited and has no options regarding IRQs.
I'm completely clueless as to what is the problem here, so I don't exactly know how much information would be needed to resolve this. My computer is a Compaq Armada E500 laptop with a Pentium III (Coppermine) CPU. I used my .config of the 2.6.9 to compile the 2.6.10.
I'm aware of the http://ftp.kernel.org/ pub/ linux/ kernel/ people/ lenb/ acpi/ patches/ release/ 2.6.10/ acpi-20041210-2.6.10-rc3.diff.bz2 patch. I've tried it, but it didn't make any difference.
I've attached my .config as config.txt
Any help is very welcome,
Diederick de Vries.
