Hi, I'm having serious trouble with setting up FreeBSD 5.0-Release on a Compaq Evo 610c-notebook.
First of all, here's my configuration: Compaq Evo 610c notebook - ROM family 68P4F System-Bios: 1/17/2003 (latest available) RAM: 1GB HD: 40GB DVD/CD-RW Display: 1400x1050 NIC: Intel Pro/100 builtin Modem: Lucent internal modem, Synaptics touchpad and pointstick Graphics: ATI Radeon Mobility 7500 AGP(LW) 32MB Bios 6.0.0 VR006.004.006.008-001.001.001 350MHz DAC Now for the problem: I run FreeBSD-setup from a CD obtained from the ISO-image (5.0-RELEASE). Upon booting the system runs into a loop like the following: First of all the "acpi.ko" ist loaded Then after some messages I see acpi_cpu: CPU throttling enabled, 8 steps from 100% to 12.5% acpi_tz0: WARNING - current temperature (1331362.0C) exceeds system limits followed by ACPI-1287 *** Error: Method execution failed, AE_AML_NO_RETURN_VALUE with the latter one repeated dozen of times The system seems to run into a loop with the messages "acpi_tz0..." and "ACPI-1287..." repeated forever. The only way to "cure" the problem is to completely turn off power! I don't even come to the point where the system starts up in order to install something... :-( So here are my questions: 1) Has anybody else seen this before? 2) What can I do against it? (I *really* want to have FreeBSD running on that box - "going back to Windoze" is no option for me) 3) To me it looks like ACPI doesn't work - any ways to turn it of in the FreeBSD-installation? (no way to turn it of in the system BIOS - I've already checked this) TIA for your help, -ewald To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
