T61 issues

Description

There seem to be a variety of issues with T61 Thinkpads. Though I would open a new ticket to disuss them.

I am running with SNAP 505, ACPI 3.06, and APM 1.21.

The screen is fine when wide resolution is enabled (1280 x 800).

The beer battery widget is rather strange. When eCenter opens it shows the wall plug icon and 100% (which is correct) then immediate decides that no battery is in the machine. When I get a chance, I will back off to APM 1.20 and report back.

UNIAUD without any parameters traps the machine. With the /C:ICH parm, the machine no longer traps, but it fails to initialize. I have the latest ALSA resynch (2008-01-28) installed.

Chuck McKinnis?

  • attach ACPI, APM, ACPI daemon logs
  • UNIAUD doesn't support HDAudio => traps. => disable it.

Did revert back to APM 1.20. Still get the same behavior with beer battery.

As I said, UNIAUD does not trap with the /C:ICH (which is what it is) parm. It just does not load. Will pursue with them.

Could not find apm$ when trying to copy the log. Attaching other logs.

Would be happy to test with 3.07 if I could find it.

comment:5 Changed 10 years ago by eco

OK, I tested 3.7, uploaded.

Let's install beer battery widget: http://ecomstation.ru/projects/acpitools/?action=down -> Beer battery widget

  • Version changed from 3.06 to 3.07

I have both battery monitors active with ACPI 3.07 and APM 1.22. Uploaded screen shots of widgets with AC on and off.

comment:10 Changed 10 years ago by eco

Pasha talks that T61 has two batteries

comment:11 Changed 10 years ago by mckinnis

It only has one battery pack. There is a backup battery pack (a little Panasonic CR-2032 that is found in most computers). Kubuntu and WinXP show correct values.

comment:12 Changed 10 years ago by pasha

Need, install apm.add from debug directory, after boot do "copy apm$ apm.log" and apm.log attach here

Changed 10 years ago by mckinnis

comment:13 Changed 10 years ago by mckinnis

I have uploaded apm_log.zip (apm.log). Created with debug version of APM 1.22. Beer battery still shows no battery and regular battery shows 255%.

comment:14 Changed 10 years ago by pasha

Open "Power object" -> property, check "APM BIOS and OS/2 support enabled" is choice

comment:15 Changed 10 years ago by mckinnis

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Checking the property fixed both the beer battery and regular battery widgets. Don't know how I missed it.

This means that the only outstanding issue is audio, and I don't see how we can fix that until the UNIAUD folks support the chipset. Therefore, I am setting this ticket as fixed.

Thanks for the tip.

  • Priority changed from minor to trivial

Oops. Missed one item. Beer battery and the standard battery widget both show 98%, but the beer battery widget shows 6 minutes remaining (which I don't think is quite correct).

  • Priority changed from trivial to major
  • Version changed from 3.07 to 3.08

I hate have to report it, but the latest ACPI/APM build (ACPI13042008.ZIP) does not do well on the T61.

If APM is enabled, the system will trap in APM right after SDDHELP.SYS loads. It will boot with APM remmed out of CONFIG.SYS.

In either case, all of the various ACPI messages that come to the screen are very distracting.

  • Priority changed from major to minor

Went back to 3.08. My comments so far:

I seem to have about everything working. I installed Panorama over SNAP using the wpi (which should be available on the CD). The battery widgets both show 98%, the beer battery widget says that I have 6 minutes left on the battery. :)

I have the following in CONFIG.SYS now. PSD=ACPI.PSD /SMP /APIC /SAP:0x20

not sure what the 0x20 buys me

DEVICE=C:\OS2\BOOT\MOUSE.SYS

I personally do not use Amouse unless it is needed

BASEDEV=APM.ADD

I removed the RUN=C:\OS2\ACPIDAEMON.EXE, created a little object for it, and put it in the startup folder. I think that trying to start the daemon too early can cause problems.

My startup.cmd file:

@attrib -r -h -s c:\os2\os2.ini > nul @attrib -r -h -s c:\os2\os2sys.ini > nul rem (using uniaud 114rc6 + 193 from Paul Smedley) @unimix.exe -id3 -cnt0 -val1 > nul @unimix.exe -id3 -cnt1 -val1 > nul @unimix.exe -id27 -val33 > nul @exit

comment:20 Changed 10 years ago by eco

/SAP:0x20 disables ACPI initializations.

So, remove this switch.

Disable HDAudio,

try boot /SMP /APIC

maybe /CD

3.13 will not boot. The kernel loads, the logo appears, and I never hear from it again.

Restored 3.11 to get booted.

Please sun simple test:

http://ecomstation.ru/projects/acpitools/download/acpi-test.cmd

Please boot with 1 CPU, collect logs, show us this logs.

comment:27 Changed 9 years ago by mckinnis

Tried with SMP kernel and PSD=ACPI.PSD /APIC. Kernel loads, logo appears, and that is the end of it. Just like before.

Installed UNI kernel. System boots. FYI, \OS2\INSTALL\UNI contains the W4 kernel, not the UNI kernel.

Next?

Uploaded an update to acpi-test.cmd. Will now permit checking of a volume other than the boot volume (acpi-test <target>) and ignore commented lines in SNOOP.LST.

comment:29 Changed 9 years ago by mckinnis

  • Version set to 3.13

Downloaded and installed test acpi 11/29 from Mensys. T61 now boots with SMP kernel. Have not run many tests as yet, but it does boot. Attaching logs.

You really cannot post this as fixed and closed until there is a release that fixes the problem. I do not consider a patched, debug enabled, incomplete download as fixed. Too many times I have seen the final builds manage to miss something, and I have to start over.

e-co:

please inform us, do you have troubles with Thinpad and ACPI 3.14?
