as someone who works for Intel near the ACPI dev team (yes one
away)... lets put it this way:
If Windows works with the BIOS, and Linux does not, that is a bug
needs fixing in Linux. The ACPI team takes this and other bugs
seriously; especially if the impact is severe functional
Windows does work. I would strongly suggest you file a bug in
attaching your dsdt....
Thank you for the advice. I filed a bugreport at
and this is how we got the bad dsdt table
(vista and xp never expirienced this problem). the report is here:
As you can see all works well now. But I have to manually insert
the dsdt in the kernel and recompile it for every kernel. :(
I think the acpi-dev-team did a great job finding and repairing
this bug but there is nothing else they could do. Inclusion of my
dsdt in the mainstream kernel is a bad idea because:
1. in the future the table could be repaired but i don't believe
2. en extra code will be needed to chack for the machine version
and the bios and apply the patch only on my machine type. :(
3. the kernel shouldn't be a place to put working dsdt tables
Now I'm waiting for another solution to save the 30 min (+ config
time) for recompilation.
