Re: ACPI and Linksys 10/100 PC Card (ed1)

Hi Matt,

Thanks for the response. I currently have disabled ACPI across the board and that seems to work fine. I will try and get some verbose output from my bootup with ACPI enabled (busy investigating how to get all the debug info required) and send that in with my ACPI tables. I should have a moment to do that tonight.

I assume that if I want to enable some verbose options I use the same method you described to boot with the -a option?

I am also in the process of upgrading to the latest base system. Maybe that helps.

Thanks again for the assistance. On the side. I am very impressed with DragonFly. Keep up the good work!

Kind regards,

   If the CD boots up ok and installs everything, but rebooting from the

   Possibilities include:  The BIOS IDE disk block translation mode,
   setting (or not setting) 'packet mode' in the boot code, and/or the
   kernel getting confused about the root filesystem.

One thing that might help would be to 'boot -a' (hit '6' from the DragonFly menu to drop into a boot prompt and type 'boot -a'). This
tells the kernel to ask for the name of the root filesystem rather
then trying to automount it, to see if the kernel actually gets that

:Hi all,
:I found the same problem on my Acer Travelmate 250. Unfortunate this is : my first BSD install, so I am not sure how to debug this. Any ideas?
