Will you please attach the output of acpidump?
Will you please add the boot option of "idle=poll" and see whether the system still hangs?
Thanks.

Comment 4 Ronnie 2008-10-31 01:42:36 UTC
The boot option of "idle=poll" dont have any effect.

Im having less problem with kernel 2.6.26-5. The attachments is for kernel 2.6.26-5.
Comment 5 Zhang Rui 2008-11-02 18:47:01 UTC
ec problem?
could you please rebuild the new kernel with drivers/acpi/ec.c file from 2.6.26-5?
Comment 6 ykzhao 2008-11-02 19:31:05 UTC
What Rui said is right. From the log info in comment #3 it seems that there exists the following messages:
    >ACPI Error (psargs-0358): [\_SB_.PHSR] Namespace lookup failure, AE_NOT_FOUND
Sep 27 07:35:14 ronnie-laptop kernel: 
    >ACPI Error (psparse-0530): Method parse/execution failed [\_SB_.PCI0.LPC0.EC0_._REG] (Node f742bac8), AE_NOT_FOUND
     The PHSR object will be evaluated in course of EC initialization(_REG object). But unfortunately the PHSR object doesn't exist. It brings that EC device can't be initialized correctly.
    Will you please try the debug patch in http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10237#C54 and see whether the problem still exists?
   Of course it is also OK if you can try the latest kernel(2.6.28-rc1/2/3). The patch is already shipped in 2.6.28-rc1.
   thanks.
    
Comment 7 Ronnie 2008-11-04 09:55:01 UTC
How do I inject the patch? Must I compile the hole kernel?

How do I get the latest kernel into ubuntu on the most easy way? Must I compile the kernel or is it possible to get the compiled kernel?
Comment 8 Zhang Rui 2008-11-04 17:10:01 UTC
First, please download the kernel source package.
and download the patch at http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10237#C54

(In reply to comment #7)
> How do I inject the patch?
in the root dir of the kernel source code, run "patch -p1 < the_path_of_the_patch"

> Must I compile the hole kernel?
> 
yes. :)

> How do I get the latest kernel into ubuntu on the most easy way?
you can download the ubuntu kernel source package.
or you can download the sourcecode tarball linux-2.6.27.tar.bz2
at
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/

> Must I compile
> the kernel or is it possible to get the compiled kernel?

you need to compile the kernel yourself.
it's easy, please give it a try. :p
Comment 9 Ronnie 2008-11-05 09:20:31 UTC
I think I wait for the 2.6.28 kernel image to be released =)
Comment 10 Ronnie 2008-11-07 15:16:16 UTC
I have compiled 2.6.28-rc3 and now ubuntu dont hang on boot. 

But now is the next problem, after startx my screen goes black and nothing happends. The video problem also exists with 2.6.27 kernel.

No video problem with 2.6.26-5.

The video card id a ATI RADEON XPRESS 200M Series  

Should this be reported as another kernel bug?

is Linux still alive? can you login via network?

please compile in cpuidle driver, and boot with "processor.max_cstate=1".
does the problem still exist?

yes, please. :)

Video problem solved after running "apt-get upgrade" to get latest version.

At last my Acer Aspire 3050 runns with Ubuntu =)
