SubjectRe: [Bug 41722] Clevo M5X0JE hangs in ACPI init
From
Hi there, Yinghai, Linus, Bjorn and others.

I started ripping things apart, first with the whole ACPI subsystem,
then with PM, with sound and I noticed that things always hung with
the nvidia watchdog/TCO module. So, I disabled it and the boot doesn't
hang there anymore. In fact, it goes further, and, for the first time
since I got my mother's notebook, the nouveau module was loaded.

Unfortunately, it died with a kernel panic and didn't reach the point
of X firing up.

So, there is something fishy indeed with these things.

Still open to sugestions. I will now compile a vanilla kernel from
Linus's tree gradually putting things in, but from what I already
talked with Bjorn, I think that ACPI will be a barrier (and it is sad
that so many things *don't* work with ACPI disabled).


Regards,
