Kernel Bug Tracker – Bug 991
/proc/acpi files appear in /proc after ACPI init failure
Last modified: 2004-03-04 19:55:05 UTC
Distribution: Debian sid unofficial/unstable + kernel 2.6.0-test1 from kernel.org source
Hardware Environment: Tyan Thunder II motherboard, 2xP2 CPUs
Software Environment: See distribution
Problem Description: The /proc/acpi directory does not exist. ACPI stuff that's usually in
/proc/acpi is placed directly in /proc and seems to be not working (these directories are
empty). All the ACPI stuff is compiled into the kernel (not modules). ACPI reports warnings
about ACPI tables while booting.
Steps to reproduce: Just boot the system and look at /proc/ after it is mounted.
can you attach the DSDT and ESDT.
does this still happen with a recent kernel?
Created attachment 1679 [details]
patch to disable acpi cleanly on load failure
please test this patch on your system. It should disable acpi on the failure
and so there
should be no acpi entries left hanging around in /proc.
Of course it may be an additional bug that ACPI doesn't load on this system...
in 2.6.2-rc3 -- closing
