Feels really good. :)
Everything working except from that bootsplash, which isn't up until that bootsplash-programm is loaded at the end of the boot process.

Using your patch, though I had to patch it by hand as "patch p1 < ..." wasn't working, and it seems stable with apic and acpi enabled! :)

For anyone who doesn't speak German:
In this topic it's the post starting with "Naja, ich war mal so frei"

At the end it says that you have to add "apic_tack=2" to your boot parameters. If it's still hardlocking use "apic_tack=1"

Ok, so it's not a scheduler thing. We already tried pci=noacpi. Are you using framebuffer and/or bootsplash?

Check your syntax, patch only works with redirected output, note the <, and not always necessary, but Linus has been encouraging kernel hackers to use the -p1 tag:
KenGen2 linux-2.6.6-rc1-love1 # patch -R -p1 --verbose </usr/src/sched-wake_up-speedup.patch

I have vesa framebuffer compiled in and bootsplash compiled in, When I boot with this: video=vesa:ywrap,mtrr vga=792 the screen just stays blank, when i remove those paramaters is when i see the previous message. I dont have bootsplash installed and I am not running the initrd from grub, it is just selected for now.

Please do. I'm trying to think what could cause the error and am running down the list of usual suspects.

quick question about kernel compiling.

when i undo selected items without selecting or deselecting any modules, do I have to :

# make clean bzImage modules modules_install

or is there a shotcut way that doesnt do everything?

make clean && make && make modules_install should take care of it.

Nothing is jumping out at me as the cause. I'd go back to the last love that worked and wait until 2.6.6 becomes stable.

I don't even understand how to do it... :( Could you post your new apic.c perhaps? :)

Good god, what did you do? That looks like a bad driver in mm. I know I didn't touch that one. Could you try using the latest mm and see if the problem still occurs?


I tried mm and it worked fine...

Weird, huh?

That is a weird one. I can't think of anything that hit that driver. Very odd indeed.

Steel300 are the nforce2 patches included in this kernel? I wouldn't mind using athcool to enable the cpu disconnect function without it doing a generous wipe of my MBR. If not can someone point me to the patches?
