Ready for 20050309? (Re: HEADS UP - ACPICA code updated to 20050211 on -CURRENT)
Ok, while your head is (hopefully) still up, if 20050211 works
without a problem and you have time, can you try the following
procedure to make sure the newer version 20050309 doesn't introduce
a new problem?
% cd /sys/contrib/dev
% fetch http://developer.intel.com/technology/iapc/acpi/downloads/acpica-unix-20050309.tar.gz
% tar zxf acpica-unix-20050309.tar.gz
% cd /sys/dev/acpica5
% sed -i.bak -e '/^SYSACPICA_VERSION/s/20050211/20050309/' Makefile.inc
% setenv MAKEOBJDIRPREFIX /var/tmp/obj
% make obj && make depend && make && su root -c 'make install'
(reboot your computer, drop into loader prompt, and type `boot -v'.
you can remove /var/tmp/obj afterwards)
I'm going to update the ACPICA code to 20050309 soon because, after
(or just before) the last import, Intel released two versions which
claim to fix AE_AML_BUFFER_LIMIT issue, and in fact there's been
one report that 20050211 had a problem on the reporter's computer which
was solved by 20050309. So if the latter has no other issues, I want to
update it before the next slip of -Stable tag.
