    ACPI question and the new Grub2

    I just installed a fresh copy of Ubuntu 9.10 on a new Toshiba I bought solely to put linux on. Unfortunately, this computer's BIOS is incompatible with Ubuntu or something so I had to turn off acpi to install the OS.

    In addition, I need to turn off acpi in the boot kernel like this gentleman did who has the exact same problem as me (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1301101). The problem is that I made a fresh install rather than an upgrade so menu.lst doesn't exist. How can I edit the boot kernel to get acpi off in grub2?

    Thanks!

    What would really be great is if anyone could give me a fix to make ACPI compatible with my notebook in the first place!

    I just had to do this myself. The file you need to edit is
    /etc/default/grub
    Look for the line:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
    and change it to:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi=off"
    Then you need to update the config files by running:
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    Check out the Grub2 community docs for more info.
