Linux_Lurker, you are correct. My post was more of a tangent and I'll edit it to reflect the inadvisability of running laptops with acpi off.
I did manage to trim the size of log files by assigning the size (e.g. 10 MB) in
and then executing
#logrotate -f /etc/logrotate.conf
Definitely, changing it form weekly to daily basis will help further.
LM sensor for AMD K10 is not working with ubuntu karmic. So, no temperature data.
With win7, the fan remains silent at idle but with ubuntu karmic (and winxp sp2), it revolves continuously at certain speed.
That's why it is noisy and a bit unpleasant.
I am posting this from a Live bootup of the latest version of SUSE. pci=noacpi as a boot option worked. I haven't tried the other options yet.
There is no discussion of these problems with the L505D series Toshibas in the SUSE forums. Maybe they are not having them, but that is not consistent with my experience so far.
I have found a kernel bug that describes the problems that we are having with acpi, however I have not as of yet compiled my kernel with the patch. If anyone wants to try it before I get around to it, the link to the kernel dev thread is here: http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14679
It appears as though the dscp table is being changed after it is initially read during boot.
If you wanna' help, great. But explain as you go. Otherwise, you're just giving away fish, and not the important stuff - pole, bait, net, etc...
Still a beginnerd, but not absolute...
I tried opensuse 11.1 live cd without any extra boot options, and yes, it still hangs.
I was looking at the changelog for the next release of kernel http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kern...Log-2.6.33-rc2 , and it appears as though there are a lot of acpi fixes. perhaps this will fix our problem of the acpi not working properly on this laptop? any thoughts?
I tried it over the weekend and it did not help.
