Here you have all device in IRQ11, so you can try et any IRQ for any device via LINK directive, or play with place drivers in config.sys. I recommended begin from Uniaud

This is a common problem of Thinkpads. You should switch some settings in BIOS setup (Performance items, Suspend stuff), then Genmac starts working with ACPI.

There is additional information in the hardware database, i can't find it now there.

Joe Galvao from ifthenelse has this same problem. When speedstep support on his R51 is switched on and its not connect to powersupply and ACPI is loaded. Wireless driver fails. Disable speedstep support in BIOS or connect to power supply laptop and it works. Now testing this on my Thinkpad T43.

The Speedstep support has to be switched of the CPU.

Loading the suggest AML file (DSDT.AML) makes no difference.

In bug 143 you wrote: "So first need find in linux site patched acpi table and try use it via directive FILE from acpi.cfg. This is possible only for Uni kernel."

Should I test this on this T43 with the UNI kernel tested with _W4.

  • Resolution set to invalid

Please try ACPI 3,7. eComStation ACPI.PSD should work on any moder Thinkpad.
