Re: Custom DSDT Table in the fedora kernel at boot time

I reopened my bug at http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10237 . Maybe the acpi code should be corrected to circumvent the broken dsdt code. if windows works, why shouldn't linux do it either?

Nobody is suggesting anything of the sort. The fix (or probably
a workaround) should be done in the kernel acpi code, because if
Windows works, then so should Linux. We don't want users to mess
with their DSDT tables, however broken they may be.
