I'm have an issue with my old laptop and DragonFlyBSD.
it's a rebranded compal 56-15, pentium m, 1GB ram, Ati video. The issue
I'm having is the live cd boots fine after i disabled acpi within
dragonfly. because it was stoping on a error
once the live cd boots with acpi driver disabled, I'm able to install
dragonfly by using the "installer" pogram everthing seems fine but once
i reboot. the bios freezes on reboot on
"insyde ACPI BIOS initialized (Version 3.00.05). i have to poweroff the
laptop remove the hd and connect it to another unit, erase dragonfly
from it and reinstall the
hd back to the laptop once again the laptop boots again. I only need to
install an OS. All other OSes work fine on this unit except dflybsd.
Thanks! I'm not sure how i will be able to get the log from dmesg when
it is running from the live cd?
