#277 closed defect (wontfix)

AMD Phenom X4 9550 + SCSI

Reported by: eco Owned by: pasha
Priority: major Milestone: Release version 3.11
Component: ACPI PSD Version: 3.10
Keywords: Cc:


From: Thorolf

I already tried it with RC4 and no success, next try with RC5:

The system:

  • Gigabyte MA790X-DS4
  • AMD Phenom X4 9550
  • 2x 1GB DDR2 1066
  • Sapphire HD3450 512MB

I also added my SCSI-Adapter (PCI Dawicontrol DC-2980 U2W) and Soundcard (PCI SB Live 1024) an the old PATA DVD-RW/RAM/...

First try:

  • put eCS 2.0 RC5 into DVD-drive
  • boot with default values
  • unpacking diskettes
  • kernel message in the corner
  • very short eCS-Logo
  • trap 0008

Second try:

  • put eCS 2.0 RC5 into DVD-drive
  • boot with own values
  • disable ACPI
  • continue booting with Alt+F2
  • system boots, installation went through and some time later it comes up with final installation tasks.
  • Panorama (ATI HD3450) and GenMAC (RTL8168) are working, USB too, SB Live 1024 PCI not yet (probably I selected the wrong driver).

Then I tried to install ACPI 3.10 and on the next reboot the system does not come up anymore ...




no, that does not help.

With PSD=ACPI.PSD /SMP /PIC it hangs at RESSOURCE.SYS, with PSD=ACPI.PSD /UNI /PIC at KBDBASE.SYS, in both cases I removed the BASEDEV=SYSM8XX.ADD from my CONFIG.SYS!

My BIOS tells me that the ACPI-controller is at IRQ 9, while the SCSI-adapter is at IRQ 11. If I find some time I can try to remove the SCSI-adapter but on the other hand it works with APM!

How can I enable SMP without ACPI?

The SMP-kernel is installed, but I need a PSD and other stuff for enabeling SMP - I have running it on my old ACP2r-server but I don't want to begin playing around to get it working!

ACPI is ready to support this motherboard, if you enable ACPI then the PC behaviour changes and eComStation can't boot on such motherboard.
