PostPosted: Mon Apr 16, 2012 1:35 am    Post subject: not receiving ACPI events in newer kernels - UNSOLVED Reply with quote

I decided to edit my post to make the description more clear.

I'm having problems getting my system to detect ACPI events with newer kernels. Currently I'm running 2.6.36-tuxonice, and everything works fine. I have tried previously to upgrade to 2.6.39, 3.0.3, and just this past weekend 3.2.1, and for each of these my system no longer receives uevents for the ac adapter, battery, laptop lid, and the function keys that control brightness.

I originally configured the kernel using my working 2.6.36 config and running `make oldconfig`, and when this didn't work I built a config from scratch using pappy's kernel seeds.

When booting into these kernels and running `udevadm monitor` or `acpi_listen` I don't get any responses at all when trying to trigger any of these events. I have tried various configurations of ACPI options in the kernel (built in, modules, getting rid of the old /proc event interfaces) and nothing seems to work.

The system does seem to recognize ACPI in general (see post below with debug output), but the events themselves never seem to fire.

Does anyone have ideas what might be wrong?


Here is the ACPI section of my current (non working) 3.2.1 kernel config:
Code:
# Power management and ACPI options
#
CONFIG_SUSPEND=y
CONFIG_SUSPEND_FREEZER=y
CONFIG_HIBERNATE_CALLBACKS=y

I've been stuck at kernel 2.6.36 for quite a while, since every kernel I've tried after this doesn't respond to udev events. When running `udevadm monitor` I don't see any events for battery, ac, lid, etc, and I can't control screen brightness anymore with the function buttons.

The last kernel I installed that works well is 2.6.36-tuxonice-r4. I tried the 2.6.39-gentoo-r3 and 3.0.3-gentoo sources a while back and had this issue, and couldn't resolve, so I decided to shelf the issue for a while to see if it would resolve itself with a newer kernel version -- but it hasn't.

Today I installed the 3.2.1-gentoo-r2 kernel, configured from a `make oldconfig` and no udev events fired. I thought that maybe since I had previously used a tuxonice kernel I would start from scratch with a new config. I started with pappy's kernel seeds and configured the 3.2.1 kernel from scratch. Everything works great, except no udev events!

Unfortunately I'm stuck on the 2.6.36 kernel because I can't suspend my laptop when closing the lid (no lid event fires).

Any advice? I can post portions of my kernel config if needed. Thanks in advance! :)

What hardware? Did you grab your old config file and use that as a starting point?

I'm using 3.2.1-r2 on my netbook (and most other machines) and acpi events seem to work...

Maybe I'm getting ACPI and udev mixed up... uhoh...

I originally used my old config as the basis of the new kernel config, but since that didn't work I configured from scratch, and had the same issue (see above).

My laptop is just a standard Intel OEM bundle. I think that that ACPI events are reported by `udevadm monitor`... are ACPI events handled by udev these days?

This is my hardware as reported by lspci, although I'm fairly certain this must be some kernel configuration issue.

I recompiled the kernel with acpi debug support, but it didn't shed much light. The interesting thing is that the kernel sees all the appropriate buttons, but there are still no uevents triggered by udev/kernel.

Code:

Guys, we still did not get a clear understanding what hardware it is. Many laptops (like thinkpads, toshibas) have separate platform dependent kernel settings that need to be enabled for ACPI to be properly handled. These settings are under Device Drivers/x86 Platform Specific Device Drivers

Same issue here. I have a Clevo M720T based notebook and there are no specific options for that one. The thing is, ACPI-events work fine under 2.6.38 but not under any newer kernel.
