Default Re: m2npv-vm won't boot newer kernels.

Hi Lonnie.

Thanks for your reply.

This bug report seems well documented:

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6975

Describes exactly what I am experiencing. It also describes a hack/fix I don't quite understand. I've been compiling my own kernels since 2.2, and I have no idea what this person is referring too:
"I compiled 2.6.18 and setting acpi_skip_timer_override to 0 instead of 1 makes
the problem go away."

It would be nice if I knew what "he" meant. I can't find a setting for that...even in:
linux-2.6.20/drivers/acpi/asus_acpi.c

I don't think I upgraded the bios on this board, but I will check next boot. In the kernel bug report it's mentioned that an upgrade to the latest bios did not fix the problem. There may have been another update, which I will check.

Anyways, I hope that is more to the point.

thanks,
Chris m. w.
