#144 closed defect (No Change Needed)

Question about APM.ADD

Reported by: Chuck McKinnis Owned by: pasha
Priority: critical Milestone:
Component: ACPI PSD Version: 3.03
Keywords: Cc:


It was discussed on the mailing list. But I'm opening a ticket, that we have history.

Why should APM.ADD be the first BASEDEV driver in the config.sys (at the top of the config.sys. Because the basedev drivers should not call APM$. APM.SYS from IBM also gets loaded after a device driver. It was never load order sensitiveI as far as I know.

You open ticket. Can you say where was problem, if apm.add set as last line in config.sys. Also I need in installed apm.add from debug directory and apm.log, which can produce by "copy apm$ apm.log"

Resolution: invalid
Status: newclosed

It's necessary find the users which have problems with APM.ADD position in config.sys

APM.ADD can't be embedded to ACPI.PSD because

  • the developers refuse this suggestion
  • no memory, it's necessary simplify acpi.psd
  • we have spent N monthes to integration of pci scan to acpi.psd

OK, I was confident that it's important put APM.ADD to the top of CONFIG.SYS.

In the last few weeks I see that APM.ADD may be placed in the end of CONFIG.SYS,

So, let's find users which have the problem, then we can start the investigation.
